Fire Up Your Feet Can Support Your School’s Walking, Bicycling and Safe Routes to School Programs
Start your school year off with the Fall Activity Challenge from October 1-31. By registering your school and tracking activity this October, you can encourage students, teachers, parents, and siblings to support healthy behavior and better performance in school. Use Fire Up Your Feet to track activity, motivate movement through friendly competition, and win cash awards for your school! We have $10,000 in cash awards for Oregon K-8 schools, see all awards here. Track physical activity before, during, or after school. Track walking, biking, PE, recess, classroom stretch breaks, it all counts for the Activity Challenge!
We are thrilled to announce that we have simplified our activity tracker, and entering individual participants is no longer required for tracking activity. There are three easy steps to participating in Fire Up Your Feet:
- Create a group and enter the total number of participants in your group.
- Track activity for your school by selecting the date, type of activity, minutes of activity, group that performed the activity.
For assistance with our new, improved tracker or questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org
When you register for the BTA’s Spring Walk+Bike Challenge in May, or the Fall Walk+Bike to School Day event you will be automatically registered for the Fire Up Your Feet Challenge. 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!
