About Walk to School Day and Bike to School Day Events
national event can be an amazing impetus for change in communities.
Through annual surveys, local Walk to School Day coordinators across the
country have told us how a simple one-day event has led to great
changes such as long-term walking and bicycling programs, new sidewalks
and pathways, enforcement of unsafe driving behaviors and needed policy
changes at schools and in communities. Improvements that normally take a
long time to institute can happen quickly when city officials walk or
bicycle to school with students and see firsthand what needs to be done.
first National Walk to School Day – called Walk Our Children to School
Day – was held in 1997. Since then, it’s come a long way. In May 2012,
the first-ever National Bike to School Day was celebrated across the
USA. Join families, schools and communities as they walk and bicycle to
school for these events each year.
