Graphic of families walking and rolling to school.

On October 6th, 2021 join people from around the world as we celebrate International Walk + Roll to School Day.

Walk, bike, scooter, skate, roll, bus, or carpool to school and be entered to win fun prizes. Grand prize winners will earn a new scooter with helmet! Walking and rolling to school is great for kids, our community, and our planet. Here are the tip five reasons:

  1. Fewer vehicles driving to school reduces traffic congestion and carbon emissions near schools and in our parking lots.
  2. More people walking and rolling builds school community and makes routes safer.
  3. Physical activity boosts kids’ readiness to learn and improves their physical and mental health.
  4. Kids have fun with friends and bond with families while walking and rolling together.
  5. Being outside builds independence and lifelong transportation skills.
