International Walk+Roll to School Day will be Wednesday October 6, 2021
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, Safe Routes to School 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.

This fall we’re asking students why they walk+roll! Is it for health, community, fun, climate, or other? Students can draw their answers and submit them to us by Sunday, October 31 to be entered to win a walking or biking pack plus fun Walk+Roll prizes.

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 and over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record-breaking participation – each October. Today, thousands of schools across America – from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – participate every October. This event takes place on the first full week of October each year and we offer free incentives such as stickers and pencils to give to students at your event.
We strongly encourage schools to have students Walk+Roll for the month of October in order to encourage healthy habits that will continue all year long. Your school can choose to participate one day, one week, one day over multiple weeks, or the entire month.
