Play, Win, Thrive with Kaiser Permanente at Sunday Parkways

Celebrate the official start of summer with a brisk walk or leisurely bike ride at Sunday Parkways in North Portland!

KP Double Dare Game at Sunday ParkwaysOn Sunday, June 22, visit the Kaiser Permanente booth at Peninsula Park to play the “Health and Care Double Dare” game, which challenges you to get moving with interactive quizzes and fun, pulse-pounding activities.

While at their booth, take a minute to sign up for a chance to win a NIKE+ FuelBand! And, be sure to share your healthy selfie on social media at #kphealthie.

Kaiser Permanente caregivers will be joining in the fun with an afternoon group bike ride. Look for their bright green shirts and be sure to ask them how they “Thrive.”

Dr. Jessi Khangura participated in the Kaiser Permanente caregiver ride at the East Sunday Parkways on May 11. “Sunday Parkways was lively and family friendly; I felt completely safe riding around with my 16-month old,” said Dr. Khangura. “There were lots of exhibits and great energy. I was introduced to parks that I hadn't visited before. It was so much fun and the community and neighborhoods really got involved! I will definitely be at the next one, too.”


So come out and join the fun! Get active this summer at Sunday Parkways!

 

Mother Nature Suns on East Sunday Parkways for Mother’s Day

BES Fish HatsDisaster Dog

Our first Sunday Parkways event of the year kicked off with lots of sunshine and smiles. 14,000 gathered at East Sunday Parkways for a joyous Mother’s Day and spring afternoon. The day was in full bloom as families and friends swept past Bloomington Park, or stayed to watch the Portland World Cup youth soccer games, to visit the vendors, or work on the art of hula-hooping.

Mid-day, the Earl Boyles Parents United Group, Kaiser Permanente, Safe Routes to School and Trauma Nurses Talk Tough united to coordinate a short ride/walk starting at Earl Boyles Elementary School, looping to Bloomington Park and ending at Ed Benedict Park. The group of over 25 kids plus their parents contributed to many of the smiling faces seen at Ed Benedict where Zumba and Korean pop beats kept both children and children of all ages dancing. Even Disaster Dog, the mascot for the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management got into the act.

Did you see the soccer games at Bloomington Park? Thanks to Portland Parks and Recreation and Portland World Cup for coming out with the teams. This lively park hosted one of the three volunteer check in stations where over 150 volunteers made everything run so smoothly. You couldn’t miss them in the Kelly green Sunday Parkways t-shirts. We can’t do this without their amazing support.Zumba

Many families also found themselves at Gilbert Heights School enjoying the bouncy castle while listening to the smooth melodies of the Dixieland Band. Atop of their heads were festive fish that found their start at the Foster Floodplain Natural Area. The Bureau of Environmental Services celebrated Portland’s support for natural spaces and educated participants specifically on the Foster Floodplain Natural Area.  East Sunday Parkways was completed with a trip to Glenwood Park where Opsfest Shakespeare spoke poetically, Circus Cascadia created laughter, and Kaiser Permanente challenged everyone to get healthy. All in all everyone had a great day!

Hula HoopingWe would like to thank all of our sponsors, donors, vendors, volunteers, entertainers, Police and flaggers for making this such a great event. We look forward to our next one on June 22nd in North Portland. To stay up to date you can like us on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter.
