INTERNATIONAL WALK TO SCHOOL IN THE USA
International Walk to School in the USA (the U.S. component of the global organization) organizes an annual Walk to School Day to bring attention to both the benefits of walking and the need for safe routes. This year, Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 8. Schools can register for the event online, and participating schools receive support and downloadable materials from the organization.
