The Walk & Roll Challenge

The Walk & Roll Challenge is a fun, inter-school incentive competition coordinated each year by COAST Safe Routes to School. It’s a five-month challenge designed to encourage students to walk, bike, skate, scooter, bus or carpool to school more frequently throughout the school year.  This year, 58 homeroom classes across 19 schools competed to see which class had the highest rate of participation the second Wednesdays in January thru May, culminating on National Bike to School Day!  If you’re a local teacher and not already part of the Walk & Roll Challenge, consider adding your class and promote fun, healthy and earth-friendly ways to get to school!  Contact our Safe Routes to School coordinator, Kim Stanley, before January to get involved!

This first chart above shows the overall Challenge results, with double congratulations to Ann Marie Galbraith’s 5th grade class AND Sigi Scigliano’s 1st grade class tied in 1st place (100%!) from Monroe and Mountain View Schools, respectively.

This second chart depicts the results of students who specifically used ‘active transportation’ (walking, biking, skate, scooter, etc.) to get to school.  Here, Mountain View School’s Sigi Scigliano’s 1st grade class came in 1st place, and Adriana Solano’s 3rd grade Franklin School class came in 2nd place.

COAST would like to give special recognition to Foothill School and their Walk & Roll coordinator, Kathy Stassforth, for organizing a stellar Walk & Roll program, not only for participating in COAST’s Walk & Roll Challenge, but for their own very successful weekly Walk & Roll program as well!  Read more about Foothill School’s Walk & Roll superpowers in this COAST article.
