International Walk+Roll to School Day
International Walk+Roll to School Day will be Wednesday October 12, 2022
We encourage schools to plan events to encourage walking and rolling during the month of October. We will provide more resources to help you plan events and order free incentives as the event moves closer.
Our 2018 Walk+Roll to School Day saw 287 Oregon Schools register and participate! We heard from teachers, parents, SRTS coordinators and enthusiasts from around the state about their Walk+Roll celebrations. Join our Facebook group to share ideas and successes with other school champions from across Oregon.

More Information on Walk+Roll to School Day
International Walk+Roll to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and rolling to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event, over time, it has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school. Today, thousands of schools across America–from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico–participate every October. Walk+Roll to School Day takes place on the first full week of October each year, and we strongly encourage schools to have students walk+roll for the whole month of October to encourage healthy habits that will continue all year long. Your school can choose to participate one day, one day per week, one day over multiple weeks, or the entire month.
