Three free classes are being offered through May 14 to Portlanders, among them People of Color Hike, through Portland startup Joyn.
Joyn class leader Rikeem Sholes, a biologist with nine years of experience working with birds, plants, and fish, says, “I started this group in hopes of getting more people of color outside. The Pacific Northwest is such a beautiful place that everyone should get to enjoy. My job has fostered a joy of being in nature, and I’d like to be able to pass that on to other people like myself.”
Hikes are at 9:30 a.m. every Saturday. The activity is designed for people of color interested in getting to know the outdoors; ages range widely. Bring weather-ready but breathable clothes and sturdy footwear, water, and trekking poles for extra support (if needed).
Other Joyn classes include Movement Lifestyle Dance, Fat Girls Boxing, Wake n' Shake Training and more.
