Plan a Walk to School Day and Get a Free Kit!

WalkToSchoolDay_HomepageMapSchools may register their  2014 Walk to School Day event and receive a North Carolina Safe Routes to School Program event kit; Wake County recipients may pick theirs up at AHA’s Sept. 30 Brains and Bodies Workshop.

The first 75 K-8 NC schools that register an event for Walk to School Day (taking place on October 8, 2014) at  will receive a kit to help promote fun and safety at the event.

The SRTS Walk to School Day Kit will include:

  •    Water bottles for event leaders
  •    Walk to School Day stickers
  •    SRTS reflective stickers and zipper pulls
  •    Pencils

Walk to School Day is an international event that gives communities across the world the opportunity to join together in walking to school on the same day. The event is part of the movement to improve safety and encourages walking to school as a healthy way for kids and families to make their school commute. Although Walk to School Day is a one day event, it is leading to long-term change. Students, parents and teachers are using Walk to School Day to inspire transformation in their communities and kickstart ongoing walking programs.

Easy steps to receiving a kit:

1.      Go to and register a school in North Carolina that serves K-8 students.

2.      Plan a Walk to School Day Event. While Walk to School Day is October 8, 2014, if that date doesn’t work for your school calendar, it’s okay to celebrate on a different day in October.

3.      Hurry! Only the first 75 qualifying registrants will receive a kit.

4.    Schools in Wake County that qualify to receive a kit may pick them up at the AHA Brains and Bodies Workshop on Sept. 30 from Jennifer Delcourt, Active Routes to School  Region 5. Workshop registrants must pre-register here.
