Safe Routes to School
Support Healthy, Active Students with Active Schools Fundraising and Fire Up Your Feet
National PTA has resolved to support efforts to improve infrastructure and safety so that students can walk and bicycle to school. The Safe Routes to School National Partnership offers two great programs for schools looking to raise money while promoting healthy, active lifestyles.
Active Schools Fundraising
Active School Fundraising is a healthier, more active way to fundraise for your PTA through walks, runs and other fun physical activity challenges. There is no startup fee or selection process – any group with a tax ID number can raise funds for their K-12 school, sports booster, or after school program using our online program. Your PTA keeps 75% of funds raised online, and 100% of onsite funds raised, such as through registrations or giveaways. It only takes a few minutes to get started!

Fire Up Your Feet Activity Challenge
Fire Up Your Feet encourages students, families, and school staff to get more physical activity while competing for the chance to earn cash awards to support Safe Routes to School and school-based physical activity and wellness programs.
