Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a national program meant to encourage, educate, enforce, engineer, and evaluate the walking and biking situations in our communities, especially around our schools. The result is better health, less congestion and less conflict areas around our schools.
The Polar Walk will take place on Feb 7th 2018.
The Polar Walk is a fun event that helps kids and parents overcome the challenges of active travel in the winter time by bundling up and walking to school. This event is unique to Moscow and the Safe Routes to School program. We call this event the “Polar Walk” not only because it’s chilly in February but also to help raise awareness of then environmental impact of CO2 emissions from cars and it’s effect on the polar ice caps. Come walk with us on this day! Kid’s will enjoy hot beverages at participating schools.
