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.
Walk to School Day 2014 is scheduled for October 8.
Healthy Savannah’s Steering Committee will participate in the International Walk to School Day at Windsor Forest Elementary this Thursday at 8:00 am. Come out and support.
