Walk and Wheel to School Week

DASH BC is excited to present our 11th annual Walk and Wheel to School Week as part of International Walk to School Month (iWalk) from October 1st - 5th, 2018.

  • Celebrating active transportation and encouraging daily physical activity
  • Promoting opportunities to practice safe walking and biking skills and identifying safe routes to school
  • Enhancing the connection between students, parents, schools, and communities in a fun and interactive way
  • Reducing school traffic congestion and vehicle emissions
