International Walk to School Day takes place on the first Wednesday of October each year. This event first began in 1997 to bring awareness to the need for walkable communities. During this event, students from all over the world are encouraged to walk or bike to school with their families to not only promote a healthy lifestyle, but to show the need for safer and more accessible streets as well as cleaner air.
As we have four different elementary schools in the area, we will have four different meeting spots for students to join us. We would love for each student to get creative with their participation. Make signs to carry, make a walking school bus, and bring your enthusiasm!
Register your child online to walk to school with SHRC Staff Members! We will have designated drop off locations for each elementary school, where a SHRC Staff Member will be waiting to walk your kiddo(s) to school! Parents are encouraged and welcome to walk with us.
Please register your children for this event, so we know how many staff to have at each location to make the walk safe for you and your child(ren).
Date: Wednesday, October 2nd Time: 7:30am Cost: FREE
Location: Please see maps below for the designated drop-off point for each elementary school.
