October 7 Is Walk or Bike to School Day

This Wednesday, October 7, is the semi-annual Bike Walk to School Day, organized through the Safe Routes to School program in Massachusetts. There are over 600 schools that participate, including four in Melrose.

Why Walk or Bike?

  • It’s Fun! There’s a feeling of joy and independence — a sense of adventure. People can appreciate things they don’t notice while driving, seeing friends and neighbors.
  • Healthier Habits. Incorporate a regular physical activity into your child’s day. This will also help your child pay attention better during school.
