The Safe Routes to School Walk+Bike Challenge is the entire month of May! The Walk+Bike Challenge is friendly competition aimed at encouraging more kids and families to walk and bike to and from school. Participation in the Walk+Bike Challenge is easy! Just register your school, download the Coordinator Packet for awesome tips, ideas, and resources, and return to the website during the month of May to track your school’s walking and biking trips!
Once you register your school you will also be able to order fun and free incentives to give out to participants during the Challenge. You can order a variety of incentives worth up to $40 for free OR choose a prepared box with an assortment of incentives (value will equal $40). The first 250 orders will also receive a Walk+Bike helmet to use as an incentive whichever way you choose.
Once you register for the Walk+Bike Challenge, we’ll keep you updated on great ways to make the most out of your Challenge and give you some handy tracking tips. As your school’s Walk+Bike Coordinator you will return to the website to report your participant’s walking and biking trips during the month of May. It’s important to track participation in order for us to tally up the totals and announce the winners of the Challenge. We will have a Walk+Bike Challenge Awards Celebration at the end of the Challenge, location and date will be announced soon!
