Walk N Roll to School Events
Walk N Roll to School events encourage youth and their families to walk, bike, or roll to school. These events promote physical activity and build community, while reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality around your school. Intercity Transit's Walk N Roll program helps participating schools with event coordination and provides each school with a tool kit to support their walking and rolling events. Schools can organize regular events throughout the year or choose to only celebrate National Walk N Roll to School Day in October and National Bike and Roll to School Day in May. Walk N Roll supports schools in Tumwater, Lacey, Olympia, and Yelm School Districts.
