BREVARD COUNTY, FLA. – On Wednesday, October 4th, school children throughout Brevard County will join thousands across the world in celebrating International Walk to School Day. Brevard Public Schools and the Space Coast TPO have partnered together to participate in the International Walk to School Day for 18 years.
This year, students from over 39 different Brevard schools will be participating in this annual event alongside their peers, parents, teachers and other school community members. Walk to School Day events work to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and the broader community.
In the United States, International Walk to School Day is expected to include more than 5,000 events across all 50 states. Walkers from the U.S. will join children and adults in 40 countries around the world. Brevard’s Walk to School Day events are conducted as part of the Safe Routes to School program – sustained, community efforts to improve the health and well-being of children by making walking and bicycling to school safer, easier and more enjoyable.
