Walk to School Day

Format: Webpage

Audience: Kindergarten - 8th grade

Cost: Free

International Walk to School Day highlights the joy that comes from walking to and from school, and the need to ensure that they have safe routes to do so. Held annually on the Wednesday of the first full week in October, Walk to School Day is often a kick-off for a larger Safe Routes to School Program. In Michigan, schools can register to get materials to help with planning, stickers for the students, technical assistance, and a certificate of participation signed by the governor to display at the school.
