Walk, bike, scoot, skate or bus to school on May 18th to celebrate spring, get active, be green, have fun, and win prizes.

How to Participate:

Your school must be registered by April 29th to receive prizes for your event. During registration you will indicate a coordinator for your school and select a choice for how you plan to organize your event. After Walk + Roll Day, schools that also report participant numbers will be entered to win 1 of 3 $500 grand prizes for PE/recess equipment! 

(*Our Wheel Fairy will also be visiting all schools during the week of May 2-6. You don't need to register for this.)

Plan Your Walk + Roll Day Event 

(This must be indicated on your registration form.) Think about how you will distribute prizes and how you will collect participant numbers. Here are a few ideas to help:
  • Hand out small prizes at school entry for all students who walk, bike, scooter, skate or bus to school. Count how many prizes available and subtract number of prizes left over to determine participant count.
  • Hand out numbered raffle tickets (could also include a small prize) at school entry (or in the classroom) for students who walk, bike, scooter, skate or bus to school. Announce raffle winners during school and count up raffle tickets for participant count.
  • Teachers take a tally of how students traveled to school (could also hand out a small prize). School will randomly select raffle winners from teacher tallies and use the tally forms for participant count.
  • Have students who travel by car walk a lap before school or at recess and count all students as participants. Select raffle winners from total students present.
  • Organize a Walking School Bus on event day. Students can be dropped off at meeting location and walk to school with other students and volunteer walk leaders.
  • Other idea - let us know what you are planning.
