Celebrate winter with a fun event – we’ve got resources to help
When the weather outside is frightful in Minnesota, we put on our hats, gloves and jackets, and get ready to have some fun. Minnesota Safe Routes to School’s seventh-annual Winter Walk to School Day is Feb. 7. It’s a celebration of walking, biking and playing in the coldest and snowiest days of winter.
The idea is simple: get kids walking outside. Whether that’s having all kids take a lap outside before school, organizing a story stroll, or celebrating those who walk or roll year-round.
After all, this is Minnesota – the land of ice fishing, hockey, cross-country skiing, fat biking and sledding. Why wouldn’t we throw a Walk (and Bike) to School Day party in the middle of the winter? Dig out your hats and gloves, organize your volunteers and get stepping for Winter Walk to School Day on Feb. 7, 2024.
Register by Jan. 24, 2024, and we’ll support your efforts with materials and incentives to get your school moving.
Help your school win the “Golden Snow Boot” Award! During each Winter Walk to School Day, our MnSRTS team asks participating schools to submit stories and photos of their event to compete for the Golden Snow Boot Award. Submit your stories and photos to [email protected] by Feb. 16, 2024, to enter.
