Sustainable Mobility logo_FINAL

Don your boots, coat, and a warm hat for Wellesley’s Winter Walk & Roll to School event on Wednesday, February 1! 

It’s fun, invigorating and celebrates the benefits of staying active and enjoying the outdoors in the winter.

Like other Walk, Bike, & Roll to School events during the school year, the Winter Walk is one of the flagship activities supporting Wellesley’s partnership with the Massachusetts Safe Routes to School program. Research shows that physical activity before school improves student focus and engagement, and walking and biking saves $$ on gas. 

Take part on February 1. Individual schools can register on the Safe Routes to School website and get free materials to help promote your walks. See you outside!
