Keep an eye out during your morning commute on October 12, 2022 as kids across the state are planning to walk and bike to school. More than 170 schools and thousands of students will take part in the National Walk and Bike to School Day.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says the annual event encourages families to develop new, healthy habits.

Families that may live too far to walk the entire way can still participate. Many districts are hosting drop off points within a half mile of schools with volunteers ready to walk the rest of the way with those kids.

Make sure to check your school’s websites to see how you can participate.
