Walk, Run, & Roll At the Oregon Zoo

August 28, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am



When was the last time you attended a charity walk & roll where you might see an elephant and participate in a scavenger hunt with your family? How about a 5k fun-run/roll where you’ll pass by some giraffes and hear some live local music? I bet this is your first chance for that. Easterseals Oregon presents our inaugural in-person Walk, Run, & Roll event at the Oregon Zoo on August 28th to raise funds for our disability services, Veteran housing assistance programs, and job-skills development services across the state. Can’t join us in person? Check out the virtual event the entire week of August 23rd through August 27th from anywhere in Oregon!

Event Overview:

Family-oriented charity Walk, Run, & Roll event at the Oregon Zoo. There is also a virtual portion of the event from August 23rd through the 27th.
Courses include both a 5k fun-run/roll and a 1-mile walk, run, & roll. Times will not be posted for the fun-run, but we will have someone timing the event for those interested in their time.

The 1-mile loop includes a scavenger hunt for kids, and both courses pass by several of the animal habitats in the zoo, so you’re likely to see animals (including the elephants and giraffes).

Activities/attractions include
• Live music by Left on Tenth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=253yRwgMGXk

• T-shirts for registered participants

• Face painting (if direction from the CDC regarding masks does not change prior to the event)
• The many wonderful animals of the Oregon Zoo
