Want to take your love of Bend to the next level? Cross your heart, pinky swear, and make a heartfelt promise you’ll leave Bend a little better than you found it. Not only is it the Bend way, we’ll sweeten the pot by gifting random oath-takers a free Bend vacation.
The Bend Pledge is our way of creating a code of conduct for everyone who spends time in Central Oregon. We follow “Leave No Trace” practices whether we’re picking up trail litter or packing reusable water bottles. We smile at strangers and we practice common courtesy on the road. Sounds pretty sweet, right? It gets better.
Take The Bend Pledge today and you could win one of two Bend vacations including lodging, meals, and activities. We draw one random pledge participant every January 1 and again June 1, so you’ve always got another chance to be a winner.
But even if you don’t score the big prize, you’re a winner in our book for vowing to do your part to keep Bend special by taking The Bend Pledge below.
