Let’s go big this year and celebrate the 27thh annual Walk to School Day! These events are not only fun for kids, but serve as important opportunities to encourage physical activity and promote safety in neighborhoods and near schools.

Kids walking to school

This year, put your best foot forward... Walk To School!

On your mark, get set, register! We’ll send you banners and posters to advertise your event, stickers and zipper pulls for the kids, and educational spoke cards and bookmarks to share with students to schools that register to share on your event day. Please register by Friday, Sept. 22

Join our MnSRTS Photo Contest and share where you love to walk. We will highlight winning photos all month long. Please help us encourage more walking in Minnesota.

More than ever, students will benefit from physical activity, fresh air and increased focus.
