Walk & Roll Funding Available to Schools

Puyallup School DistrictEmpowering Children to Walk & Bike to School

Feet First and Cascade Bicycle Club are excited to offer a mini grant program to get more kids moving more. Let us support your efforts to increase the number of children walking and bicycling to school. We are excited to award funding to 25 school districts across the state toward this goal.

 

Evidence shows that walking and biking promote positive emotional, mental and physical health outcomes. Physical activity engages students and can help improve attendance as well as classroom learning and performance. Healthy children are healthy learners.

 

Funding for the mini-grant is provided by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) with support provided by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Cascade Bicycle Club, and Feet First.

 

Recipient Eligibility

 

Public schools grades 5th-8th in Washington State are eligible for funding, however only one award will be made per district. Single schools can apply OR a district can apply if it is confident that it can serve more than one school and fulfill the program requirements.
