Join us in celebrating Vermont's inaugural Walk and Roll to School Day on May 2nd!
This day -- which complements International Walk to School Day, held every October -- is a great way to encourage positive changes in community culture, and to create environments that are more inviting for everyone, young and old. Here are some reasons to support walking and biking to school:
- To enhance kids' health through physical activity
- To improve air quality by reducing automobile emissions in your school zone
- To make the streets safer by relieving traffic congestion
We invite parents and caregivers to support their children in walking or biking to school on May 2.
Schools, this event is a great way to get started as a Safe Routes to School Resource Center Partner - or to move towards the next partnership level! Please see the State of Vermont's Safe Routes to School Resource Center for tip sheets and other program resources.
