International Walk to School Day

Wednesday, October 13th, 2021

International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October. Today, thousands of schools across America – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – participate every October.

 


 

Georgia Walk to School Day
Wednesday, March 16th, 2022

In 2019, more than 150 schools participated in the event from across the state. And last year, despite COVID closing schools and businesses, we had schools and communities participate virtually. While social distancing continues, there are ways to participate while staying safe. Encourage walks in neighborhoods. Have students walk to school masked up and socially distanced. As more people embrace walking and bicycling for exercise and transportation during the pandemic, make sure to promote safety skills and behaviors.

Let’s make this year even better with more events and more kids walking and rolling! Active transportation is great for children's health, their ability to learn and focus, and the environment.
