Schools Step and Bike into Walktober
Students throughout the district are participating in events promoting walking and biking to school. The events also raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and to also stress the importance of increasing children’s physical activity, walker safety, and reducing traffic congestion. Reducing traffic also helps improve air quality.
The effort is sponsored by WALKSacramento and includes special school walks, assemblies, and Halloween-themed walking safety programs.
