Choose one day this year to celebrate Virtual Walk & Bike to School Day.  Then, walk or bike with purpose all year long.

Whether you're in school virtually or in person, we can help!

Even though schools look different this year, it's still a great idea for families to be active together. This year join our VIRTUAL Walk & Bike to School Day. Encourage families to start the school day with a neighborhood walk or bike ride. Then, keep the momentum going year-round!

Why start the school day with a walk or bike ride?
It is FUN!

Starting your school day with a walk or bike ride is an opportunity for students and families begin the day with enthusiasm. Virtual Walk to School Day also builds connections between students, families, and their environment.

It encourages safety
It's an opportunity to reinforce safe pedestrian and bicycling skills while bonding as a family.

It promotes physical activity
Starting the school day with a walk or bike ride is one of the easiest ways to get daily physical activity that kids need to be healthy.

It is good for learning
Research shows that walking helps overall learning (Source: Active Living Research). Students start the school day alert and ready to learn.

It helps reduce traffic congestion
More kids on foot or bike with their families means fewer cars on the road. Fewer cars on the road results in less traffic congestion around the school zone and neighborhood. Parents enjoy driving less.
