Walk to School

More kid-power. Less horsepower.

Did you know that children who walk or bike to school arrive energized and ready to learn? Ditch the car this year and increase your child’s daily step count by participating in walking and biking activities. 

Walking Wednesdays 

Beach Cities Health District (BCHD) originally created Walking Wednesdays to encourage families to walk with their children to school, thereby helping to reduce car traffic and increasing social connections. While walking is the focus of Walking Wednesdays, other forms of active transportation like biking, scootering or skateboarding are also encouraged. Although BCHD no longer directly manages this program, some Redondo Beach schools continue to host this program on a weekly or monthly basis. Please contact your school for more information.

The three Beach Cities school districts (Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach) participated in last year’s event which took place on October 12, 2022. Nearly 2,800 people, including Beach Cities Health District staff, along with students and their families, school administrators, volunteers and local officials, laced up their sneakers and started the day walking or rolling to school.
