International Walk to School

Each October, millions of children, parents, teachers and community leaders across the globe walk to school to celebrate an International Walk to School. Communities can choose to celebrate for a day, a week, once a week or the entire month with International Walk to School Month. In the USA, the focus will remain on Walk to School Day with support for communities that choose to celebrate for the length of time and dates that fit their interests and resources. The next Walk to School Day will be held on Wednesday, October 3, 2007.

The US web site offers online registration, instructions on how to get involved and resources to help plan a walk in your community.
