Join people worldwide in promoting health and community by walking to school on International Walk to School Day, Wednesday, October 4! Walking or bicycling to school is an opportunity for kids to be outdoors and provides time to connect with parents, friends and neighbors. It also helps kids develop their sense of responsibility and independence. Walking and bicycling to school can contribute significantly to children getting their recommended hour of daily physical activity. Walking and rolling also benefits the health of the entire community through reducing pollution. If more students walk or roll to school, fewer cars will be near schools at pickup and drop-off times, making it safer for students and reducing congestion.
Get out and walk & roll on International Walk to School Day, Wednesday, October 4th!
