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 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.
Plan to participate 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!
