The Challenge is a friendly and healthy “competition” that encourage families, students and schools to work together to create active lifestyles that keep families healthy and help kids improve academic performance. By tracking activity at your school, that can and should include your Walk+Bike to School Day fun, you will compete to win cash awards to support your school’s walking, bicycling and other physical activity programs. Both Challenges are encouragement programs aimed at getting more kids walking and biking to school. And both programs have awesome incentives for you to take advantage of!
