Walk to School Day

Virtual Walk to School Day. Walk with purpose.
October 7, 2020

Whether you're going back to school virtually or in-person, we can help!

Schools may look a little different this year. It's still a great idea for families to be active together. This year join our VIRTUAL Walk to School Day. Encourage families to start the school day with a neighborhood walk. Then, keep the momentum going year-round!

Why start the school day with a walk ?

Walking is FUN!
Starting your school day with a walk is an opportunity for students and families begin the day with enthusiasm. Virtual Walk to School Day also builds connections between students, families, and their environment.

Walking encourages safety
It's an opportunity to reinforce safe pedestrian skills and encourage while bonding as a family. 

Walking promotes physical activity
Starting the school day with a walk is one of the easiest ways to get daily physical activity that kids need to be healthy.

Walking is good for learning
Research shows that walking helps overall learning (Source:
Activing Living Research). Students start the school day alert and ready to learn.

Walking helps reduce traffic congestion
More kids walking with their families means fewer cars on the road. Fewer cars on the road results in less traffic congestion around the school zone and neighborhood. Parents enjoy driving less.
