This is a once per month promotion to encourage students to walk, bike, skate, or scooter to school. Students who routinely take the bus or are driven to school are asked to walk to the bus stop and/or park some distance from school and walk the rest of the way. This program promotes health and wellbeing, as well as encouraging the use of alternative forms of transportation. As a part of this program, students are also invited to participate in International Bike and Walk to School Day in early October as well as the Bike and Walk challenge that takes place in the month of May.
For more information about this program, please contact , Jason Plumb and Christophe Esayian, leaders for the Bike and Walk to School Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The YMCA of the Columbia-Willamette operates a before and after-school care program for Alameda families. For more information about this program, contact the YMCA.
