Winter Walk to School Day

Be #VermontTough! Join families across Vermont on Winter Walk to School Day!

Cool that cabin fever with a refreshing winter walk to school! There are so many things that you can do on a walk that you can't do in a car! PLUS, it's a great way to start the day: energized, and ready to learn. 

Join Vermont families and school communities on 2/2/22 for Winter Walk to School Day! All you need to do to participate is to walk to school (or to some other destination)! And there are no rules! Just find a place where you can walk--even a short distance--to school. You can park 1/4 mile away from school and walk from there! OR you can go big and walk the entire way from your house to your school. 

Families who participate will be eligible to win some fun prizes, like Darn Tough socks, or "low light" visibility items like a light-up dog leash, or reflective vests! Even if you can't walk to school, you can walk (or bike) for transportation somewhere else, and that will count towards the challenge as well!  To participate in this challenge and be eligible for prize drawings, post your Winter Walk trip and tag it #VermontTough. Local Motion will draw five winners from the #VermontTough tags on 3/15/2022!  

Can't make the walk on 2/2/22? That's fine. Turns out, ALTERNATE Winter Walk to School day is -- any other day in February.


Is YOUR school participating?  Find out here: List of Schools Participating in Winter Walk to School Day 

If your school isn't participating, you can ask your school to participate, or even just get a crew of families together and walk to school yourselves!  (Parent groups are eligible for hot chocolate & sticker support from Local Motion, so sign up below if you want to run an event yourself!)
