SC Walk to School Day
Safe Routes to School on March 5th, as thousands of children and their
families celebrate South Carolina's Walk to School Day. This one-day
event established by Partnership for a Walkable America, commenced in
1997 in order to build awareness for the need of walkable communities.
Carolina's Walk to School day serves as a way to highlight the need for
safe walking routes to school and encourage active transportation to
and from school. Active transportation can increase physical activity,
reduce pollution, and foster a sense of community. Safe sidewalks and
streets also add economic value to our community!
Join the effort!
