Volunteer for Sunday Parkways! Southeast Portland May 21st
Important Venue Notes
Summer’s almost upon us again, which means that your favorite neighborhood ciclovia is right around the corner!
City of Portland Sunday Parkways, presented by Kaiser Permanente, is a series of five community events that promote healthy living by opening the city's largest public space - its streets - for people to walk, bike, roll, and discover active transportation! Besides all the active outdoor fun, the events strive to foster civic pride, stimulate economic development, and represent the investments that communities, businesses and government bodies are making in Portland's vitality, livability, and diversity.
Last year over 100,000 people attended the events, with 250+ volunteers making it all possible. The first event of the season is coming up in Southeast Portland on May 21st, and we need your help to make it a success!
Here’s how we need your help... • Mobile Superheroes to ride the route on your bike, keeping a watchful eye on the neighborhood and backing up the Intersection Superheroes.
• Intersection Superheroes to command the barricades, making sure participants are safe from cars and neighbors are happy.
Each shift lasts no longer than 3.5 hours, but you may sign up for more than one!
...and here’s how we show our appreciation! Every Sunday Parkways volunteer receives: • an HEATHER PURPLE Sunday Parkways volunteer t-shirt • refreshments before your shift • support before, during and after the event • a 2017 Sunday Parkways bandanna - volunteer for any three Sunday Parkways shifts across the season and it's yours!
