Safe Routes Chagrin is pleased to host its
Walk to School – Walk to Town Day
September 20, 2019
Safe Routes Chagrin helps to give children an active, healthy start and end to the school day by encouraging and enabling walking and biking to school.
Our fan favorite event is just a few weeks away… in case you missed it, last year hundreds of intermediate school students participated by walking to school in the morning and then to town after school for food and fun activities in Riverside Park.
The 10th annual Walk to School – Walk to Town event is Friday, September 20th and we’ve planned extra special activities, food and prizes to celebrate this anniversary and the newly re-opened Intermediate School.
What you need to know:
Permission Form is REQUIRED for students to participate after school – CLICK HERE – deadline is Mon. 9/16.
* Be sure to sign up early so your student gets a chance to win “Early Bird/Chicken” prizes.
