Walk to School Day
Stopping off at the Governor’s Mansion
International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, it has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration each October. Today, thousands of schools across the country – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico – participate every October.
In conjunction with Nevada Moves Day, a statewide event held in March each year, the day celebrates the fun and benefits of walking and bicycling to school. It also encourages K-8 students, school staff and families to get physically active.
