Your positive experience with a Walk to School Day event or other Safe Routes to School (SRTS) activity this year is important. Other schools and communities will be inspired to learn from your success. Please share your photographs and stories with our national partner so that we can all better promote the SRTS program. We would love to use these items to bring more schools into the program. Thank you for everything you do and keep up the good work – Bike to School Day is just around the corner.
