Safety Spotlight
 October 7th is Walk and Bike to School Day 
On Wednesday, October 7th, thousands of students, parents, community leaders, and state and local officials across the United States and in Oregon will walk, bike and roll to school in celebration of Walk to School Day.
In Oregon, as of Monday, 242 schools including public and private schools have registered their Walk +Bike to School Day events.
This one-day event in the U.S. is a part of an international effort in more than 40 countries to celebrate the many benefits of safely walking and bicycling to school and to encourage more families to consider getting out of the car and onto their feet on the way to school in October.
Walk + Bike to School Day in Oregon has been promoted by the Oregon Safe Routes to School Network since 1999, providing training and resources to schools who participate in the international event. You can learn more about safe walking and biking to school at the Oregon Safe Routes to School website.
To see the list of registered schools and locations walking, biking and rolling in Oregon, visit the BTA Oregon Walk + Bike website
