Sunday Parkways: Calling All Superheroes

Be our superhero on May 11.

Volunteer LukeLast year more than 85,000 Portland‑area residents and visitors participated in Sunday Parkways, enjoying the city’s beautiful parks and the family-friendly bicycle routes called Neighborhood Greenways. This year brings another set of community-connecting events on five looping routes with no start or end.

Kaiser Permanente, our presenting sponsor, is committed to healthy lifestyles, including volunteerism.  Every year Kaiser Permanente employees come together and volunteer for each Sunday Parkways.

 “Giving Something of Yourself”

Kaiser Permanente employee Luke Bogash is a veteran Sunday Parkways Superhero. Each Sunday Parkways route has its cross streets blocked with barricades, but inevitably there are drivers trying to get through. Intersection Superheroes are volunteers who help with traffic flow, answer questions, redirect neighborhood traffic, and set up or take down intersection barricades.

Volunteering at Sunday Parkways has been so satisfying that last year Luke served as a Superhero Coordinator, continuously biking a route segment to direct and support some 20–30 Intersection Superheroes. He plans to play the same role this year.

“It’s not easy, but I like that,” says Luke. “You have to react on the fly and use your interpersonal skills to keep things calm, so you feel like you’re giving something of yourself. It’s a good test of patience, and the people taking part in the event are incredibly appreciative.”

 
Join the Fun!

If you’re feeling heroic, please consider volunteering. There are different positions, locations, and shifts suitable for outgoing personalities like Luke Bogash and also for people who’d rather work behind the scenes.
