    Walk-N-Roll to School Week

    Walk 'N' RollPima County encourages students to use active transportation to get to school during the first week of October by hosting Walk-N-Roll to School Week. The purpose of this week-long event is to promote active ways to get to school, such as walking, biking, scootering, skateboarding, or rollerblading in order to reduce congestion and emission from motor vehicles near schools. Walk-N-Roll to School Week also promotes physical fitness, builds community, and inspires families to use their feet more often for their school commute.

    Each year, Pima County schools join thousands of other schools around the country to encourage walking and rolling throughout the school year in celebration of National Walk to School Week. Students from participating schools in Pima County who walk or roll to school during the week receive a sticker and are entered into a drawing to receive a scooter as a grand prize.

    The Pima County Department of Environmental Quality (PDEQ) works with the Pima County Health Department to host this special event.

    Mobile Bike Repair is also offered by Living Streets Alliance to Safe Routes to School partner schools and other schools upon request. Request a mobile bike repair at your school.
