Wednesday, March 4 is the official date for the Sixth Annual Georgia Walk to School Day, but schools are holding events throughout the month of March.  With over 110 schools registering Georgia Walk to School Day events, this promises to be the biggest year yet.

Georgia Walk to School Day was started to celebrate walking and biking to school. School events encourage more students and parents to participate in walking and biking, and raise awareness about the value of active transportation, as making kids more ready to learn once they get to school.  Complete, safe and comfortable walking and biking networks benefit not only schools, but the entire community.

It's not too late to plan an event! More information on Georgia Walk to School Day is available on this website under What's Happening, or contact the Resource Center hotline at 1.877.436.8927.
