Walk & Roll to School Day

International Walk and Roll to School Day

This year on Wednesday, October 10, schools across San Francisco will participate in Walk & Roll to School Day—now celebrated in over 40 countries around the world!

Parents: Pledge to walk with your children to school! (and enter to win prizes too)

Last year, Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor Ahsha Safai celebrated at Cleveland Elementary School, along with students, parents, teachers, school staff, and city leaders. Citywide, 76 schools and 11,000 elementary school students took part, walking and rolling wheelchairs (and bikes) to school.

Register your school today!

This year, we’d like to see 100 schools participate! Here are the schools that have already registered to participate.
Sign up here to organize Walk and Roll to School Day for your school! This is usually a role played by school staff, but parents can do it too. You’ll:

  • Be the main contact for the event;
  • Help your school have a successful day; and
  • Report the number of students who participate.

To organize a successful event, just download and follow the Walk & Roll to School Day Toolkit.

Each school that registers for this year’s Walk & Roll to School Day will receive:

  • Participation stickers
  • Posters to promote the event
  • Incentives for student participants, such as pencils and reflective key chains*

* Supplies are limited and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis

If you have any questions, please email Vernon Haney at Walk SF.
