Work with us to ensure that all communities in Washington are walkable—join our people-powered movement by taking some of the following steps:
WALKTOBER challenges you to take steps to explore your surroundings each day during the month of October. You’ll walk away with a better connection to your surroundings and be eligible to win some amazing prizes.Whether we are commuting to work or school, meeting friends, running errands, or exploring a new neighborhood, a walk can become an adventure.
You envision a community where walking is a primary mode of transportation and is safe and easy to do. You know that much needs to be done to make this vision a reality, and you want to help. Please support our work with a donation. You can donate to a program, in memory of a friend or family member, or to our general fund. Every little bit makes our movement stronger.
Join our volunteer team to ensure all communities in Washington are walkable. Feet First is a small nonprofit and every volunteer makes a big impact on the work we do—volunteers and interns work side by side with staff, board, and committee members to manage projects and events. There is a lot of room for leadership, initiative, and making change; steps taken by our volunteers and interns often leave a lasting and meaningful mark.
Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors are volunteers trained to lead walks that inspire, connect, and inform the community. These walks provide people an opportunity to explore their communities together while meeting new neighbors. We are imagining a different way of connecting with our surroundings that takes steps towards improving personal and environmental health while sharing knowledge.
Take walking to another level. Citizens, businesses, and professionals all play an important role in making pedestrian projects a priority in design, policy, and funding. Let’s work together to redesign walking back into people’s lives by planning environments where it is easy to be active on foot.
