Become a Neighborhood Walking Ambassador. The free training gives people the know-how to build their favorite walking tour inspired by Redmond’s great trails, public art, nature, history and parks. Neighborhood Walking Ambassador tours inspire people to get out and enjoy Redmond by foot.

Friday, August 8, the Neighborhood Walking Ambassador walks lead to a free community concert along the Sammamish River Trail by Redmond resident sound artist Rulon Brown. Space is limited so RSVP now. This performance is presented in partnership with 4Culture Site Specific, and Redmond Arts Program.

Since 2012, Feet First has trained more than 50 Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors who have led over 200 walks. These walks have been successful, drawing more than 2,700 participants over the past two years.

“I volunteer with Feet First as I feel like leading walks is an ‘on the ground’ way to promote walkable communities,” said Neighborhood Walking Ambassador Bryan Fiedorczyk. “I think walking is a fun and effective way to travel, to really soak in our surroundings that we often miss by faster moving modes of transportation, and build exercise back into our daily routine.”
