National Walk to School Day is Oct. 4th!

Hundreds of Maine school children will walk or bike to school with family members, school staff and volunteers in celebration of National Walk to School Day on October 4th. Organized events are planned at schools across the state throughout October, which is National Walk to School Month.  Check out our blog for photos and highlights from past years: Walk & bike inspiration from across the state!
