Walk+ Bike to School Day
Walk + Bike to School Day will be Wednesday October 4, 2017. Register HERE!
Oregon's Walk + Bike to School Day celebrates walking and biking in conjunction with International Walk + Bike to School Day. It's an annual event that celebrates and promotes all active transportation options to and from school and throughout the community.
It’s great for our kids and it’s great for the community.
- More walking and biking will reduce traffic congestion near schools.
- Less traffic congestion means increased community traffic safety.
- More walking and biking means increased physical activity.
- It’s FUN!!
In Oregon, major support for Walk+Bike to School Day comes from The Street Trust, Safe Routes to School Leadership Committee and Oregon's Safe Routes to School Program to help schools throughout the state make the event a success. These groups offer ongoing support, technical assistance and resources for schools and communities to encourage more kids to walk and bike to school throughout the year.
