“Walk With Friends” was borne of a conversation between ZOO Health Club owner Debbie Van Dyne and Lesley Wise of the Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace.

Three 30-minute group walks take place each Tuesday evening during the Marketplace, starting from the ZOO Health Club booth at 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 p.m., designed to encourage community fitness and to support local businesses.

After just nine weeks, “Walk With Friends” has introduced more than 120 local walkers to 17 local businesses and organizations in the downtown area.

In the next three weeks, walkers will learn more about Bollywood Movez, Hillsboro Hobby Shop, Liberty Fit, Third Avenue Hair Salon, Five Star Guitars, and the Oregon International Air Show.

Each week, walkers receive a different colored “Walk With Friends” wristband and participate in raffle prizes, with many of the prizes donated by the local business partners.

Walkers are eligible to receive a grand prize at the end of the season for a one-year ZOO Health Club membership.
