This group of parents, teachers, and community leaders from across Oregon worked so hard to encourage kids and families to walk and bike to school. Thanks to their efforts, we achieved 242,000 walking and biking trips this year alone. If you know anyone doing this work, give them a huge high five — or better yet, offer to help yourself!
Planning a BBQ this summer? While you’re eating delicious burgers and drinking yummy beers, talk to your friends who have kids about participating in the Walk+Bike Day and Challenge
so that next year, we can reach even more kids.
If you are feeling especially excited about next school year, sign up for the month-long October Challenge at Fire Up Your Feet, and start those healthy habits the first full month of school! You can register all summer long at www.fireuypyourfeet.org, and don’t forget to look for updates as you head back to school. Those participating in the Fire Up Your Feet Challenge will be automatically entered to attend Walk+Bike to School Day and receive special incentives. Don’t miss out this awesome opportunity, and thanks again everyone!
