NATIONAL WALK TO SCHOOL DAY

untitled10

National Walk to School Day is observed annually on the first Wednesday in October. This is a day to get out and get some exercise while enjoying the weather.

Walking is one of the best forms of exercise. It isn’t hard on our joints and feet like running and jogging but still gives us all the advantages.

The goal of this day is to raise awareness and support for the health, community and environmental benefits of regularly walking or biking to school.

OBSERVE

Walk to school or work. Enjoy the weather. Take photos and post on social media using #walktoschoolday.

HISTORY

Organized by the Partnership for a Walkable America, Walk to School Day in the USA began in 1997 as a one-day event aimed at building awareness for the need for walkable communities.

    I think this is a great idea, so many kids these days expect to go every where by car. And in general terms, they just don’t get outside enough!

    It is a great idea to walk to school, but not all communities are set up for walking. Where I live not one child would be safe from traffic walking to the local schools. Not exactly a planned community.
