Walk to School Day is an annual event that brings together schools and communities to raise awareness about the importance of traffic safety, and the fun and health benefits of walking. It has become a global event that occurs yearly on the first Wednesday in October. Want to plan ahead for next year's event? Walk to School Day 2020 will be on October 7, 2020!
NCTCOG provides FREE giveaway items to encourage schools to participate in Walk to School Day. Registration for Walk to School Day 2019 is now closed. Please check back next year to register your school for Walk to School Day 2020.
Make every day Walk to School Day! Examples of ongoing activities include Walking School Buses (check out this one in Fort Worth!), and Golden Sneaker Programs.
