On Wednesday, October 9th Sabin School will participate in International Walk + Bike to School Day!
We will join together with over 4 million kids in more than 40 countries to take strides to make ourselves healthier and our world a better place. Our steps are real action toward solving the health, economic and environmental problems that our communities face today. This one day event can be a catalyst for habitual, healthy activity--for ourselves and kids as well as our environment. Providing them with positive experiences walking and biking to school will pave the way for being physically active throughout their lives!
Did I mention prizes and swag?! We will have a drawing for a Nutcase Helmet! We'll also have other fun freebies given to us by Oregon Safe Routes to School. Hot chocolate will be provided for the early arrivals! Please contact Liberty Wilson, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like to help volunteer with this event or future events.
