Walk to School Day on October 4!
Looking for a healthy way to start the day? Jumpstart it by walking your child to school! Join hundreds of students and parents in Montgomery County in celebrating International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, Oct. 4. International Walk to School Day was founded in 1997 as a way to bring community leaders and children together to build awareness for communities to be more walkable. It is celebrated by thousands of schools across the nation and in more than 40 countries worldwide.
Walking to school is a great way to promote health, identify safer routes for walking, and improve air quality. International Walk to School Day is a great opportunity for you to help your child learn and practice safe walking skills. If you live too far from your child’s school to walk, drive part of the distance, then park and walk the rest of the way!
