Every October, schools across the county – and the world – celebrate International Walk and Roll to School Day (IWR2SD). The celebration is designed to encourage students, families and the school community to walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized transportation to get to school.
This year, we are celebrating walking and rolling for a whole week in Alameda County! From October 19 – 23, students across the county can participate in International Walk & Roll Week (IW&RW) in their neighborhoods in a safe and physically distanced way. This is a great opportunity to make our streets safer, reduce traffic, improve air quality, and have fun exercising with our families!
Find out more about the celebration at the Alameda County Safe Routes to School website.
