Record Breaking Participation in Walk & Roll to School Day!
On October 8, International Walk & Roll to School Day, nearly 90 schools and 14,000 children across San Francisco participated in a record-breaking Walk & Roll to School Day. Thanks to the efforts of the SF Safe Routes to Schools Partnership, over 85% of San Francisco Unified School District elementary schools participated, growing the event by 10% this year.
