Registration for the 2017 Walk+Roll Challenge is now open!
The Walk+Roll Challenge is a friendly, month-long competition—held annually in May—aimed at encouraging more kids and families to walk, bike and roll to and from school and throughout their neighborhoods. The Challenge is hosted by The Street Trust (formerly the Bicycle Transportation Alliance) with support from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, our sponsors and other partners.
Once you register your school for the Walk+Roll Challenge, be sure to order your free incentives! Incentives include: stickers, temporary tattoos, prize ribbons, bandanas, pencils and helmets. Order link below. Check out the Resources page for various tips, curriculum, and your free coordinator packet that includes: tips and resources for promoting the event; organizing parent volunteers; procuring local prizes; and how to track active transportation trips taken by students.
Schools can track on a weekly or monthly basis; or log just one day. The Street Trust will award prizes at the end of the Challenge, for the schools who log the most biking trips, most walking trips, and most rolling trips; largest total number of students walking, biking and rolling; and highest percentage of students (out of the total school population) walking, biking and rolling. Additionally, you will be registered for Fire Up Your Feet, as the first step to additional cash awards—more than $10,000 available—to support your school’s walking, bicycling, and other physical activity programs.
