What we're about

Feet First is a local nonprofit working to ensure all communities in Washington are walkable. We organize many fun walking events throughout the year---come walk with us!

Most of the walks are led by trained Feet First's Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors. Our Feet First Walks are for everyone who wants to discover new walking paths, experience other places on foot, and meet friends. Walking together is a healthy, sustainable, and fun form of transportation providing a better understanding of our surroundings and how to improve them and the opportunity to share knowledge. You'll see a whole lot more at 3mph compared to 30mph!

Whether you walk your child to school, walk to the senior center, or walk to your bus, or just enjoy walking in your neighborhood, we work to ensure everyone has a safe way to go by foot.

With your support, Feet First is working hard to make that happen.
