South Yorkshire Mayor announces walk and wheel challenge for schools

South Yorkshire’s Mayor Oliver Coppard has announced a new Walk and Wheel Challenge for all schools in the region.

The challenge, held between the 17 and 28 of June, encourages every primary school child in South Yorkshire to walk, wheel or cycle to school each day, to become more active and healthier.

It’s easy for schools to take part. Sign up and download our fun toolkit, where you’ll find ready-made resources including activity packs, colourful posters, fun stickers and more.  Entries must be received by 14 June.

The Mayor, alongside triple Olympic Champion and Active Travel Commissioner for South Yorkshire, Ed Clancy OBE, announced the new challenge as he walked with children to their school at Joseph Locke Primary School in Barnsley on Monday 20 May.

They joined pupils at the school as part of Walk to School week, organised by Living Streets, to take part in a walk to school with them and an assembly to announce the new challenge.

The challenge forms part of the Mayor’s key manifesto commitment to make South Yorkshire the best place in the country to walk, wheel and cycle for our children, with an ambitious plan for active travel centered around schools.
