Media Release from Safe Routes to School - February 25, 2019

Join Other Parents Dedicated to Increasing Walking and Biking to School

We need you to lace up your sneakers and join our new parent-led Walk and Roll Wednesdays team to encourage more walking, biking and carpooling at our schools!

Our goal is to create a safe biking and walking culture by encouraging green travel every week through promoting “Walk and Roll Wednesdays”, beginning on March 13th. We hope to teach our children the lifelong lesson of using their feet to get places. We will be walking to ISD 166 and GES, starting from one of the three locations on our Safe Routes to School map each Wednesday.

Please contact your Safe Routes to School Coordinator, Andrea Orest by email at [email protected]or by phone at 387-2330 ext. 110 if you are interested in being a parent volunteer or if your child is interested in joining our group. Follow us on Facebook at “Grand Marais Area Walk and Roll Wednesdays”.
