NATIONAL WALK OR BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY

WATCH THE VIDEO!

 

Through PennDOT's Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Grant, GVF initiated the project, "My School in Motion."

​The program educates students on the benefits of walking and biking to school, addresses traffic congestion, environmental, and health effects.

My School in Motion helps identify barriers that prevent students from biking or walking safely within the community, assisting in the prioritizing of needed infrastructure improvements. 

Throughout the pandemic, we have seen a tremendous spike in biking and walking as modes of transportation. The increase in use tells us there is great value in investing in this type of infrastructure within our communities.

Biking and walking allow students to travel safely, maintaining social distancing recommendations, emitting zero C02 emissions, while enhancing physical and mental wellbeing. 

 

October 14th Valley Forge Middle School  celebrated National Bike or Walk to School Day.
 

Since 1997, communities have been coming together for Walk or Bike to School Day. This year, the global coronavirus pandemic means that travel to school may be different from prior years. But it does not mean we can't celebrate and bring awareness to the benefits of walking and biking to school.


Valley Forge Middle School students participated in a poster challenge and watch an educational video about biking and walking to school.
