Did you know that in one generation, the number of kids walking and bicycling to school has dropped from 71% to 18%? And that cars are responsible for 50% of the Bay Area's greenhouse gas emissions?
Leave your car at home and walk, ride, roll or take public transportation to school for International Walk & Roll to School Day on Wednesday! Peralta will join schools from around the world in celebrating the joys of human-powered transportation. Join us in celebrating healthy neighborhoods.
If you need to drive consider parking a few blocks from school and walking the rest with your kids. Don't forget to pick up your goodies and stickers on the way in!
Walk to School day events will be held regularly throughout the school year.Â Consider joining a Walking School Bus or becoming a leader of a new route.Â For more information or to help out please contact Raphie Breines at raphiebreines AT gmail DOT com.
