International Walk to School Day

Safe Routes to School, led by Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, are making a difference to reduce the number of child pedestrian deaths and injuries in our communities. International Walk to School day is a fun and interactive way to promote walking to school safely. This one-day event which involves communities from more than 40 countries began in 1997. Over time, it has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school. Today, thousands of schools across America - from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico - participate every October.
