The Oregon Safe Routes to School Spring Challenge is taking place this May
The Walk+Roll Spring Challenge is a month-long, friendly encouraging students to ‘walk and roll’ outside for transportation and exercise. This year’s event starts on May 1st and ends on May 31 st. Our goal is to encourage as many students as possible to increase their physical activity in May by using active transportation modes like walking, biking, scooting, skating, etc.
About the Walk+Roll Spring Challenge:
The first-ever National Bike to School Day took place on May 9, 2012, in coordination with the League of American Bicyclists’ National Bike Month. Almost 1,000 local events in 49 states and the District of Columbia joined together to encourage children to safely bicycle or walk to school.
The event builds on the popularity of Walk to School Day, which is celebrated across the country – and the world – each October. Many communities and schools have been holding spring walk and bicycle to school events for years. National Bike to School Day provides an opportunity for schools across the country to join together to celebrate and to build off of the energy of National Bike Month.
