Join the Grandest Walk of Them All!
May 23, 2008
Limited 'feets' are still available for the Regence Grand Floral Walk, the biggest new Rose Festival event to take the streets of Portland! On Saturday, June 7, walkers will be stepping off at 9:30 a.m. -- just prior to the KeyBank Grand Floral Parade. Healthy life stylers, recreational walkers and hearty hikers can still sign-up for Oregon's most entertaining walking event ever.
Join "Jet" -- the newest American Gladiator -- as she sets a casual pace with The Battle Ground marching band, Rose City Roller Derby, giant puppets, entertainers and festival dignitaries Mark McGirr (Rose Festival President) and Mark Ganz President and CEO of Regence).
Regence is the largest not-for-profit health insurer in Oregon, and for more than 60 years the company has shared in the Rose Festival's tradition of community service by working to enhance the health and vitality of the state.
"As a local company, serving the needs of our community is an integral part of our corporate culture, and we are proud to partner with the Portland Rose Festival Foundation to add a new, health-focused event to a favorite Northwest tradition," said Ganz.
Registration is now open!
