  • Virtual Walk to School Day 2020

    Since 1997, communities have been coming together for Virtual Walk to School Day. This year, the global coronavirus pandemic means that travel to school may be different than prior years. In some places, schools are open and students are able to walk and roll to school. In other places, the school trip might just be to the living room. Regardless, communities across the country tell us that they remain committed to participating in Virtual Walk to School Day this year—and that the reasons for participation remain the same, with physical activity, safety and social connectedness rising to the top.

    To allow participation across learning environments, families, neighborhoods and schools are all invited to register participation this year. Virtual Walk to School Day activities might happen at home, around the neighborhood or at school…there’s room for everyone!

    Reflect on why you and your community care about walking to school and use Virtual Walk to School Day to solidify commitments and work towards needed changes.

    While October 7 is officially Virtual Walk to School Day in 2020, communities are welcome to celebrate any day in October that works best for their schedules and that fits with local public health guidance.
