Your Sustainable City Participates in African American Health Coalition Walk

0 Comments

African American Health Coalition WalkAugust 15, 2009 BDS participated with six other Bureaus in the 7th Annual Wellness Within Reach Walk. The City of Portland’s “Your Sustainable City” Outreach Group participated as a team to not only support the Coalition, but to promote the Upcoming Fix It Fairs to the community.

The African American Health Coalition puts on this fundraiser walk to help support free health education clinics and raise health awareness in the African American community. African American Health Coalition WalkThe walk was 1.5 mile or 3.0 mile walk around the delightful northeast Portland starting at Dawson Park. In addition there was a collaboration of lots of music and snacks from different vendors.

As long time participants of the Fix It Fairs our outreach team wanted to make sure that we are reaching all of the different communities to enhance the participation and diversity of the fairs attendance. Staff had on out team Fix It fair shirts and handed out Fix It fair information along the walk. We received a warm reception and a lot of people told us that they had never heard of the Fix It Fairs, which are designed to educate and assist Portland residents and their families save energy and money at home and lead healthier lives.

African American Health Coalition WalkThe upcoming Fix It Fair Dates:

  • November 21 | Roosevelt High School | 6941 N Central St
  • January 9 | David Douglas High School | 1001 SE 135th Ave
