Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

National Walk to School Day

National Walk to School Day First Wednesday in October

NATIONAL WALK TO SCHOOL DAY

National Walk to School Day is observed annually on the first Wednesday in October. This is a day to get out and get some exercise while enjoying the weather.

Walking is one of the best forms of exercise. It isn’t hard on our joints and feet like running and jogging but still gives us all the advantages.

The goal of this day is to raise awareness and support for the health, community and environmental benefits of regularly walking or biking to school.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Walk to school or work. Enjoy the weather. Take photos and post on social media using #walktoschoolday.

HISTORY

Organized by the Partnership for a Walkable America, Walk to School Day in the USA began in 1997 as a one-day event aimed at building awareness for the need for walkable communities.
