WINTER WALK + ROLL DAY -- FEBRUARY 24

Join K-12 students and families for a wintery walk or roll in your neighborhood on Wednesday, February 24!

The following tips can help keep you safe and comfortable while walking and rolling in Winter:

  • Be Safe – Stay 6 feet away from those not in your household and wear a mask.
  • Be Seen – Wear bright, reflective clothing, use a bike light, and stay alert on dark, winter days.
  • Be Prepared – Dress for the weather. Rain gear and warm layers keep you dry and comfortable all season long.

After your trip, visit the link below and fill out the form to earn a raffle prize. 25 raffle prizes will include: reflective umbrella, clip-on safety light, bicycle seat cover and bicycle light! Tag #BSDtogether #BSDsaferoutes to be featured on BSD’s social media accounts.

Walk & Roll: It’s Good for Your Heart

Whether you walk or bike a few blocks or over a mile, physical activity is good for your heart, your whole body, and it’s fun! With cold winter weather, children spend less time playing outside, but a nice brisk walk or bike ride will help achieve their recommended 60 minutes daily exercise and help prevent childhood obesity and support healthy bones.
