In celebration of Walk to School Month in October 2009, DDOT will offer DC Schools all the materials needed to start a Frequent Walker & Bicyclist Reward Program, dubbed the “Walk & Roll Club.” The Walk & Roll Club fosters healthy lifestyles and reduces traffic congestion by encouraging students and their parents to walk and bicycle to school. Students earn credit toward prizes each time they walk or bicycle to school. The school with the highest participation will win a smoothie party — the smoothies will be mixed in a bicycle-powered blender. Contact Jennifer Hefferan to sign up by September 25th at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 671-2227.
