Walk and Bike to School Day is October 9th - Register Now!

A little over a week ago Statesman Journal reporter Stefanie Knowlton wrote about the dearth of kids walking and biking to school.

Last October you might remember she also wrote about Walk + Bike to School Day:
Only four out of Salem-Keizer’s 65 schools signed up for International Walk to School Day Wednesday. And two of them already pulled out.

“People aren’t into it for some reason,” said David Lemons, the PE teacher at Salem Heights, one of the two remaining schools.

“I don’t understand it,” he said, “to me it’s a no brainer.”
Lemons is right.

It's a no brainer!

And it's time to register your school!  (And get swag!)

Walk + Bike to School Day is Wednesday, October 9th.  Click here to go to the Walk + Bike Oregon Safe Routes School page to register.

On the blog, LeeAnn has a series of plans tailored to whatever level of commitment you want to make - from testing the waters to whole hog!

Check it out and register your school!

Ha! That's great. No idea the swag was THAT good! Hopefully other Salemites will get in on the deal before they run out!
