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.
