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. Walk to School Day 2019 will occur on Wednesday, October 2. Ninety-eight schools in the DFW region participated in Walk to School Day 2018. Can we beat that number?
