We have great news for all the Walk+Bike Challenge coordinators and anyone else looking to sign up for the Challenge!
The Bicycle Transportation Alliance and the Oregon Walk+Bike Committee are teaming up with Fire Up Your Feet to offer additional resources for Walk+Bike Challenge participants this spring!
Parents, guardians, students, and school staff can register through Fire Up Your Feet and track the number of minutes they spend doing physical activity each day. As a bonus, schools with the highest percentage of participation (based on school enrollment) can qualify to earn additional challenge awards grants for their school!
People who register at Fire Up Your Feet will receive inspiring reminders to keep moving throughout the Walk+Bike Challenge and throughout the year. Coordinators registered at Fire Up Your Feet will also receive weekly reports on their school’s participants’ activity.
A: Yes, when you register simply check the box titled “School Coordinator.” The packet of Walk+Bike Challenge incentives will be shipped to the address of the school you are coordinating.
Q: Do I need to register at both websites?
You can still register at walknbike.org and log trips weekly for your whole school the way you have in the past.
By registering at fireupyourfeet.org, your school becomes eligible for additional challenge awards, up to $1,000! The challenge awards can be used improve your school with new gym equipment, bike racks, or to create programs that get kids active.
