Weekly Tip - Walk to School Month

October is International Walk to School Month.  Ask your local school if they are participating in this great event.  Why walk to school?
  • Encourage physical activity by teaching children the skills to walk safely, how to identify safe routes to school, and the benefits of walking.
  • Raise concern for and awareness of the environment, your neighborhood, and your health.
  • Reduce traffic congestion, pollution, and speed near schools.
  • Share time with your family, friends, and neighbors.
California's Walk to School Week is October 4-8, 2010 and Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 6, 2010.  Save the date, schedule the time, and walk your children to school on the 6th!
