The October 4th Walk+Roll Challenge is Almost Here

October 4th is International Walk to School Day and to celebrate, schools across Oregon are holding Walk+Roll events that challenge students, families and educators to walk, bike or scoot to school. Last year, 265 Oregon schools participated. These challenges are a great reminder of the benefits of active transportation. Try ditching the car on October 4th and celebrate your health, the environment, and school spirit.

Live too far to bike or walk to school? Try parking the family car a few blocks from school and walking the rest of the way. Or, try walking to and from your school bus stop.

The Walk+Roll Challenge is organized by volunteers. If you’re interested in helping a school participate in the Walk+Roll Challenge, contact your school district’s SRTS Coordinator.
