Join more than 10,000 walkers at schools around Nashville on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013!
Walk to School Day is celebrated in more than fifty Metro Nashville Public Schools. This fun event encourages our students to engage in physical activity while highlighting the importance of sidewalks, crosswalks, and other pedestrian infrastructure.
The 2013 Walk to School Day Spotlight School is Dan Mills Elementary. Mayor Karl Dean will join students, teachers, and parents from Dan Mills to highlight the benefits of daily walking.
All Nashville schools are strongly encouraged to participate! Organizing a Walk to School Day event at your school is simpler than you might think. Download our Walk to School Day Planning Handbook to access sample forms, flyers, timelines, and frequently asked questions.
Organizers- please register your event here by Friday, September 20.
