for promoting Walk and Roll Days at your site, including but not limited to International Walk and Roll to School Day. Your event can be as simple as sending home a
flyer, making announcements, and setting up a welcome table in front of
the school – or you can take it even further and involve kids in
promoting the event, other parents, and the community.

supply of printed (English) posters in mid-September. However, whether or not your
