It’s Walk to School Day!

Our West Coast followers are just now packing up their backpacks and getting ready for school. Before you all go stand out at the bus stop or hop in the car with your parent, remember that it’s International Walk to School Day!

This day started in 1997 and has gained more and more popularity each year. It’s now celebrated in all 50 states, and includes biking to school too.


Walking or biking to school is a great physical fitness addition to living a healthy lifestyle, and you’re helping your community by reducing pollution and traffic!

As of 11am EST, 3,971 Walk to School Day events have taken place toward this year’s tally. Visit this website to plan a route and upload your Walk to School Day pictures!
