Why Walk & Roll to School?

Safer Streets

Communities with higher rates of walking and bicycling tend to have lower crash rates for all travel modes. One reason may be that motorists drive more cautiously when they expect to encounter pedestrians and bicyclists. More pedestrians and bicyclists can also improve personal security by providing more “eyes on the street.”

Healthier Communities

The common goal of improving conditions for walking and bicycling brings families, neighbors, school officials and community leaders together. The sense of community also builds as children and parents develop walking and bicycling buddies and chat with neighbors on the sidewalk or path.

Cleaner Environment

When families decide to lace up their sneakers or strap on their bike helmets to get to school instead of riding in a car, they help reduce the number of air pollutants emitted by automobiles.

Thank you to our 2022 supporters and partners!
