School photos from
Auburn's Walton School Walk to School Day -
200 students, plus teachers and staff, walked from Raymond Park to the school, Principal Mike Davis said. “We participate in one Walk to School Day in the fall and one in the spring,” he said. “It encourages healthy habits. We love it.”
This year’s national participation broke all previous years’ participation counts (
2018 coming in with 5,613 registered events!). More communities, more schools, more people are seeing the importance and value of safe walking and bicycling to school. We hope you’re feeling that momentum where you are and you are able to leverage it for your Safe Routes to School goals.
Twenty-Four Maine schools from York to Fort Kent participated. We hope your school took part or will in the future!
