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!
It's free, but we still need all students registered by October 8th to ensure we have plenty of volunteers on-hand at each location!
