October is International Walk & Roll to School Month, and 2022 marks the 20th Anniversary of celebrating it in Sonoma County! Join us - and kids from all over the world - on International Walk & Roll to School DAY on Wednesday, October 5th (or an alternative date of your school's choice). In addition, we challenge you to walk & roll to school or anywhere on as many days as you can during the month of October, and recording it on our 20th Anniversary of Walk & Roll tracking sheet!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN INTERNATIONAL WALK & ROLL TO SCHOOL (& ANYWHERE) MONTH:
