The first Wednesday in October makes a perfect time to celebrate National Walk to School Day. Not only does the day encourage getting some exercise, but the weather is perfect for walking to school, too.

Walking is one of the best forms of exercise. It isn’t hard on our joints and feet like running and jogging but still gives us all the advantages.

The goal of this day is to raise awareness and support for the health, community and environmental benefits of regularly walking or biking to school.

HOW TO OBSERVE #WalkToSchoolDay

Walk to school or work. Enjoy the weather. Take photos and post on social media using #WalkToSchoolDay.

NATIONAL WALK TO SCHOOL DAY HISTORY
