Volunteers for Walk/Bike to School Days

The monthly Walk/Bike to School days requires volunteers taking 30-45 minutes to help improve visibility of crossings, provide some supervision and encourage kids and parents to try walking/biking to school.  Consider getting involved! You can hand out raffle tickets along the trail, hand out snacks at school, or join the movement and walk or ride with students!

On sponsored walk/ride days, adult volunteers will be posted along the trails at the blue "T" marks (roughly 0.5 mile apart) handing out raffle tickets and providing some adult supervision. We would like at least 2 volunteers per location for back up in case of illness or other schedule conflicts for follow up events.

  • If we cannot get  volunteers at all the "T" locations, especially those farthest from the school, we'll prioritize volunteers at busier crossings and closer to the schools to serve the most students.
  • Times volunteers posted at T locations on map to hand out tickets based on school start times and distances:
