Approximately 1,600 students from Dublin, Frederiksen, and Murray Elementary Schools will be encouraged to walk and roll (bicycle) to school along with parents, teachers and school administrators.
At each participating school, kids and parents will be rewarded for walking or rolling to school with giveaways and refreshments. The goal of Walk to School events is to encourage walking and bicycling by establishing connections between families, schools and the community and by increasing awareness of issues surrounding physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion, and the environment.
The local event is being organized by the City of Dublin. For additional local information, please contact Erin Steffen, (925) 556-4524, or Officer Chris Golding, (925) 833-6670, City of Dublin. Students at participating schools should check with their administration for information regarding their Walk to School Week celebration.
