The first Wednesday of October marks International Walk & Roll to School Day, with millions of children across the world celebrating walking and rolling to school throughout the week. In Alameda County, we’ve grown the event to include students who bike, scooter, skate, ride transit, or carpool to school too.
Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools ensures that cities and schools throughout Alameda County are on the map for this international celebration by providing tools, trainings, materials, banners and prizes for any school interested in participating. This activity is an excellent kick-off activity for a year-round Safe Routes campaign in your school.
