A Successful First Walk to Work Day in Portland

Yesterday marked Portland’s inaugural “Walk to Work Day” event. Portlanders from all over the city left their cars at home and opted to make the trek in to work on foot, instead.

There were four separate starting meet-up points that all convened at City Hall in downtown. Once everyone was together, it was time for some breakfast and recess games.
