RC Celebrates International Walk to School Day

Students, parents, teachers, school staff members, City officials, public safety officers, and the community celebrated International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 5th, 2016. Healthy RC's Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program has begun another school year of working to ensure that everyone gets there safely. The SRTS program is a comprehensive approach to bicycle and pedestrian safety to enable and encourage all children to walk and bicycle to school.

Several schools in Rancho Cucamonga have participated in International Walk to School Day and Safe Routes to School. This year Cucamonga Middle School had hundreds of students participate in walking and biking to school. SRTS is a year round effort to promote safe routes to school and encourage physical activity. If you are interested in joining an existing program, creating a new program in your school, or would like additional information, please visit HealthyRC.com.
