Walk & Roll Week: October 26-30, 2020

Celebrating Getting Around in People-Powered Ways!

Each October, thousands of kids at schools across San Francisco walk, scoot, and bicycle to school as part of International Walk & Roll to School Day. 

With most students learning remotely this fall, we created five days of activities to celebrate getting around in people-powered ways like on foot, bicycle, and scooter. Walk & Roll Week proved to be a great alternative this year, with students and classrooms at 29 schools participating. 

While Walk & Roll Week is officially over, you can still get your passport to do the activities. Plus, the art contest is still open!
