Hard to believe that October is right around the corner next week! October is Walk to School Month, with October 9th being official “Walk to School Day.” This annual event (started in 1997) is part of a year-round effort to promote safe, healthy alternatives for kids to get to school.
Last year there were over 4,000 events around the country. Is your Washington school one of the 22 participating this year? If not, it’s easy to create an event; the Walk to School site has tons of resources to help organize your community and promote your event, including a tool to map safe routes.
After your event, the site offers more fun features to share your photos and give feedback on how your day went.
