Overall, there was a great statewide turnout for the May Walk+Roll Challenge! Thank you to everyone who planned and put on Walk+Roll events.

SRTS in Medford celebrated with a Spring Walk+Roll on May 8th for National Bike+Roll to School Day. Julie Van Horn, SRTS Coordinator for the Medford School District, advertised the districtwide event as a Walk+Roll and pointed out that it was National Bike+Roll to School Day.

Although Julie did not require the schools to track participation, some completive schools did. The school Julie helped in person during the Spring Walk+Roll was Lone Pine Elementary, which is one of Medford’s bigger elementary schools. They had 158 students who walked and rolled.  

Julie told me Jefferson Elementary takes SRTS events seriously. They had 190 students Walk+Roll, which was almost half of their student population who participated! Julie found out that some kids walked from home and others got dropped off at a meet-up spot. 

Howard Elementary was a school that Julie helped twice during the school year with Walk+Roll events. The students’ participation increased! They had 96 students who walked and rolled on May 8th.

Out of the 14 elementary schools in Medford, 9 participated in Julie’s Spring Walk+Roll!
