Placer County Walk to School Week

This week is Placer County Walk to School Week!

Walking or riding a bicycling to school promotes a healthy lifestyle for children of all ages.  This alternative to riding in a car provides regular physical activity for children to participate in, and it also helps reduce air pollutants in our communities.

In coordination with International Walk to School Day, PCTPA and local partners are hosting various walk to school events this week.  Look for PCTPA and the big happy “walking school bus” at the following locations:
