Schools Encouraged to Participate in the 20th Annual Walk to School Day on October 5th

Health, safety and environmental benefits of walking to school are why the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) asks that your school be involved in next month’s International Walk to School Day. The event aims to encourage safer and improved routes to school, along with healthier habits and environmental awareness for students .This year’s annual International Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 5th.

Schools that plan to participate are asked to spend time instructing students on pedestrian safety prior to the event. Teachers, faculty, and parents can also participate.

The first International Walk to School Day in its current form took place in 2000 when the United Kingdom and Canada joined the United States in participation. Today more than 40 countries participate on all six inhabited continents.
