Getting Fired Up for Autumn

In August, our focus turns to the remaining vacation days we have yet to take… and what too-quickly arrives: the bustle of back to school.

Though the cool days of autumn seem far from us now, we have much to look forward to when it comes to keeping our kids active and healthy. As school schedules settle down, October is an exciting month for keeping routines for walking and biking to school, and getting physical activity throughout the day. Here are two great ways to keep moving in Oregon & SW Washington:

  • Fire Up Your Feet Fall Challenge — October 1-31: Celebrate all forms of physical activity to school and throughout the community. Cash awards based on school participation & staying active during the month-long challenge.
  • Walk+Bike to School Day — Wednesday, October 7: Celebrate this special day with thousands of schools internationally. Can your school reach 100% participation on this day?

In Oregon? Get started with registration here — the first 250 schools to register will receive a package of free incentives, while getting automatically signed up for both the Fire Up Your Feet Challenge and Walk+Bike to School Day.

In SW Washington? Get started here.

Everyone! Check out these & these encouragement ideas for assemblies, poster contests, bike rodeos, and more!
