Organized by the Partnership for a Walkable America, Walk to School Day in the USA began in 1997 as a one-day event aimed at building awareness for the need for walkable communities.  In 2000, the event became international when the UK and Canada (both of which had already been promoting walking to school) and the USA joined together for the first International Walk to School Day.

Tomorrow York Region Police will be helping us celebrate International Walk to School Day by celebrating with those families that walk children home from school (3:30 p.m.).
