Walk to School Day

Thousands of students in more than 200 schools across Minnesota will participate in International Walk and Bike to School Day next Wednesday, Oct. 4.

The annual event, sponsored by Minnesota Safe Routes to School, encourages students and parents to get outside, increase their physical activity, teach pedestrian and bicycle safety, reduce traffic congestion and strengthen connections between families, schools and communities while walking and biking to school.

Walk to School Day also encourages parents and community members to begin thinking about the walkability and bikeability of their neighborhoods. For more information, visit www.walkbiketoschool.org.
