Walk to School Day

Join students, families, and school leaders around the country on October 10 to celebrate the benefits of walking to school during International Walk to School Day.

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.
