Get Involved in Walk to School Month in October
You can also plan ahead for the International Walk to School Month in
October when millions of children, parents, and community leaders around
the world promote safer and improved streets, healthier habits by
encouraging physical activity, and environment conservation by reducing
traffic congestion and pollution.
MORPC is promoting and coordinating such efforts around the region.
Participating agencies include schools, health departments, service
departments, police agencies, and parent associations, among others.
The goal is to bring communities together, to build partnerships among
different agencies, and to work towards a safer and more livable region.
