Walk to Class Challenge

Walk to Class Challenge Day will take place on the UC Santa Cruz campus on Tuesday, April 22nd to promote walking as a viable and sustainable transportation mode for cross-campus travel, to reduce UCSC’s carbon footprint and to improve individual health.

The idea for the Walk to Class Challenge Day came from students in the Blueprint for a Sustainable Campus and is a student led-effort to promote walking as a healthy and environmentally sustainable way to get around our beautiful campus.  The Campus Sustainability Plan calls for 75% of cross-campus travel to be made by human-powered modes and to engage students in choosing more sustainable modes of transportation.  By participating in this Challenge, you are taking a step in the right direction to help achieve these goals!

Complete a quick pre-survey to be eligible to participate. Then, upon completion of the Challenge Day, all participants will take a brief post-event survey and be eligible to win a $50 VISA gift card.
