You can register your school for the North Carolina Bike to School event and have the chance to become one of eight randomly selected events to receive a “Ready, Set, Roll” kit to help promote fun and safety during their celebrations and all year long. North Carolina Bike to School Day will take place on May 4.
The event is meant to be flexible to best fit your community and school’s circumstances so it can include biking, walking or a combination of the two. Drawings will be held on April 13, April 20, April 27 and May 25. Register now for the most chances to win.
Winners will receive 30 reflective zipper pulls, 30 water bottles, 30 heel clip lights and 30 drawstring backpacks.
Bike to School Day is a national event that gives communities across the country the opportunity to join together in biking to school on the same day. The national event is part of the movement for year-round safe routes to school and encourages biking (and walking) to school as a healthy way for kids and families to make their school commute. Although Bike to School Day is a one day event, it is leading to long term change. In North Carolina, students, parents and teachers are using Bike to School day to inspire transformation in their communities.
To be eligible:
*register a school in North Carolina that serves K-8 students at www.walkbiketoschool.org.
