Walk or Bike to School Day October 9, 2013

Walk or Bike to School Day is Wednesday, October 9th.  The first National Walk to School Day was in October 1997 and in May 2012 the first ever National Bike to School Day was celebrated.  The office National Bike to School Day is May 7, 2014 but here in the Capital Region we will celebrate October 9th, 2013 and May 7, 2014 by walking and biking.  Many local school districts are supporting this National celebration with events in their own neighborhoods.

Capital Region Walk or Bike to School Day events:

Bethlehem

Schenectady

If you would like to organize an event at your own school there are a number of great resources and tools on the Walk Bike to School website (http://www.walkbiketoschool.org).  You may want to try a walking school bus or a bike train or just  organize some classroom activities.  However you plan on celebrating, Capital Coexist can help!  Please email jceponis@cdtcmpo.org to request Capital Coexist stickers, rack cards, bike safety activity books and/or bike safety comic books.

Be sure to register your event on the Walk Bike website or find an event near you: http://www.walkbiketoschool.org/go/whos-walking/2013/NY
