Walk and Bike to School 2019: VACDES students celebrated National Walk and Bike to School on October 2, 2019. Communities across the United States laced up their sneakers on October 2, and the hope is that these events will lead to ongoing activities to promote walking and biking throughout the year. Virginia had 378 schools registered for the National Event. The first National Walk to School Day was held in 1997 and the first-ever National Bike to School Day was celebrated in 2012 across the USA. For More information see the Walk and Bike to School website. Stay tuned for next year's event!
