New Date: June 18, 2023
Decoding Dyslexia Oregon has decided to postpone our 1st annual STEP UP FOR DYSLEXIA walk which was set for June 14th, 2020 because of the COVID-19/Corona Virus Outbreak.
Based on information from the Governor, CDC, and the Oregon Health Authority, postponing is the right thing to do. If any community member got sick because of our event, we would be devastated.
We will miss gathering to raise dyslexia awareness, but we hope you will join us next year on Sunday, June 18th, 2023. Your registration will be good for the rescheduled date.
You can either decide to:
1) Join us on June 18th, 2023 and keep your registration
2) Get a refund of your donation
3) Get a refund of registration fees and all purchases
PLEASE tell us your preferences below**!
**Please note: if you need to choose more than one option, please do one at a time, refresh your browser, and enter a new response. That is all you need to do. We will update your request for you.
With love and care for you and our community.

This family-friendly event is a 1-mile walk to raise awareness for kids with dyslexia. Kids are encouraged to create and become their favorite superhero! Be creative, think out-side-the-box, or invent your own superhero costume! Enjoy art activities, bubble mania, Zumba warmup and more! Walkers can get discounted deluxe ride bracelets to Oaks Amusement Park for the entire day after the walk for a greatly reduced retail rate! This is a fun way to raise awareness and connect with your community while supporting kids who learn differently and the work of Decoding Dyslexia Oregon.
