Sole Support - Bend Volunteers


This year the Bend Sole Support walk will be live and in person.  Our routes will include a walk around Drake Park and along the riverfront and surrounding neighborhood!  

Expect a bigger and better community area with entertainment, vendors, and activities.

The success of our annual Sole Support fundraising and awareness walk rests on our supporters and volunteers!  

We hope you will join us by volunteering the day of the walk.
