How did it get to be October so fast? Well, however it happened, October means that the National Center for Safe Routes to School’s 22nd Annual Walk & Bike to School Day is coming up. Schools across the nation are planning events for the day, Wednesday, Oct. 10, with almost four thousand planned already nationwide. In Washington, there are 32 events registered on the Safe Routes to School site. Unfortunately, none of those are in Spokane, so please encourage your child’s school to take part and get it on the schedule at the Walk to School Day registration page.
If you would like to plan something but not sure what, there are also event ideas and tips on the site. Also, let us know if something is happening at your school to mark the day and we will help publicize it.
