2017 Walk & Bike to School Day
We are proud that the North Carolina Department of Transportation chose to feature our Walk to School Day as their sponsored event this year!
We think Walk to School Day is a great opportunity to show support for child and youth pedestrian and bicyclist safety in our community. Read more about the event at www.walkbiketoschool.org.
