Start Thinking Back to School
Back to school means more children walking and biking on our roads. It’s exciting and fun, but there’s one thing all families should add to their lists as they prepare for back to school – how will you get there?
Now is a perfect time to start thinking about how we make the trip to and from school. We encourage all to look at active ways to make the trip back to school! Check out Back to School for ideas and resources.
And before you know it, it will be October!
October is an exciting month for walking and biking to school and getting physical activity throughout the day. Here are two great ways to get moving:
- Fire Up Your Feet Fall Challenge: October 1-31 Celebrate all forms of physical activity to school and throughout the community. Cash awards based on school participation during the month-long challenge.
- Walk + Bike to School Day: October 7: Celebrate this special day with thousands of schools internationally. Can your school reach 100% participation on this one day? Register at walknbike.org! The first 250 schools to register will receive a package of free incentives.
Check out Back to School to get encouragement ideas for assemblies, poster contests, bike rodeos, and more!
Have fun! School will start again before we know it!
