Participants received an #OaklandWalks mask to support safe outdoor activity and electronic pedometers to track their steps.
Oakland students and their teachers took over 67 million steps in October 2020 as part of the first Oakland Walks 4 Schools initiative.
More than 1300 people tracked their steps, covering an estimated 33,500 miles!
The schools that participated in #OaklandWalks serve a majority of students from low-income families and traditionally don’t have the ability to raise a lot of extra funding from PTAs.
That’s why the Oakland Public Education Fund was so excited to be able to donate nearly $110,000 to 15 Oakland public schools to recognize their amazing accomplishments.
Big thanks to all of our students, staff, family members, and community partners for making Oakland Walks 4 Schools a huge success!
- THANK YOU to Niantic for your financial support
