Every October, schools across the county – and the world – celebrate
International Walk and Roll to School Day (IWR2SD). The celebration is designed to encourage students, families and the school community to walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized transportation to get to school.
Due to distance learning, this year, we’ve turned International Walk and Roll to School Day into a week-long event with fun activities and prizes! It starts this coming Monday, October 19th and runs until Friday, October 23rd. Students can participate by walking and rolling in their neighborhoods in a safe and physically distanced way.
Students can join for one day, or participate all week long. All elements of this event will be fun, safe and physically distanced. That means everyone can still participate, whether walking or rolling are daily activities or new habits.
This year, there will be a new way to track participation via the International Walk & Roll Week Passport. Each day of the event will have a different theme, and students will track their walking and rolling activities throughout the week using the passport.
At the end of the week, students can submit their passport for a chance to win a prize. At least one participating student at each registered school will receive a prize during the drawing.
Students can access and submit the passport in one of three ways:
- The Paper Passport – Students can print out the attached PDF (or get a copy here), check off every day they walk or roll, and submit it by sending a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org, or text a photo to 510-459-4137 at the end of the week.
- The Virtual Passport – Download a digital version as a PDF here. As students check off every day, remind them to save their progress! Students can submit it by sending it to email@example.com at the end of the week.
- The Online Passport – Fill out a form to log trips at this link. This option requires students to log their trips every day. Students do not need to submit anything at the end of the week.
**Students must submit their passport in any one of the above ways to be entered into a drawing for the grand prizes. Students do not need to walk and roll every day to be entered into the drawing for a prize. Each school will have at least one winner, selected one week after the end of IW&RW.
