Central Oregon rolls on International Walk and Roll to School Day
In Central Oregon and around the world, school children walked or biked to school Wednesday. They took part in International Walk and Roll to School Day. The event, which began in 1997, involves communities from more than 40 countries, according to The Street Trust, a Portland nonprofit that promotes public transit, walking and bicycling. While the event encourages children to be active and healthy, it also brings communities together, according to the website Walk & Bike To School
Many thanks to Commute Options volunteer Nancy Kraemer, who rode on the High Lakes Elementary Halloween ride to Regal Cinema’s in Bend’s Old Mill. The 5th graders watched “The Adams Family,” and then rode back to school!
