Friday, Oct. 4 Walk & Roll to School details

Annual event encourages active forms of morning commutes 

On Friday, October 4, two elementary schools and Clemson University will host a “Walk & Roll to School Day” to encourage students, teachers and parents to get out of the car and get active in their morning commutes.

Clemson Elementary School, Clemson Montessori School and Clemson University will participate in this year’s “Walk & Roll” day. Expect to see children and adults on foot, bikes, scooters and skates from about 7–9:00 a.m. on Friday.

The event is co-sponsored by the Clemson Elementary PTA, Clemson Elementary, Clemson Montessori School, Clemson University Healthy Campus, Clemson University Parking & Transportation Services, and Friends of the Green Crescent Trail.

Families at Clemson Elementary can plan to walk or roll from one of four locations, where they can park a car during the event if needed: 

  • Their homes (if nearby)
  • Clemson Park parking lot
  • Country Walk parking lot
  • Walmart Neighborhood Market parking lot

The Clemson Tiger Cub will be on site at Clemson Elementary to greet students and celebrate their choice to be active and reduce street congestion and pollution.

Families at Clemson University can plan to walk or roll from: 

  • Their homes (if nearby)
  • The Snow Family Outdoor Wellness Center (to join with others)

Suggestions for how to safely walk, bike, and drive near pedestrians and cyclists can be found on the Facebook page of Friends of the Green Crescent Trail.
