As we approach milder weather this fall, it’s the perfect time to get outside and go for a walk. When you live in Giles you can walk to three of the highest rated schools in the region — Cool Spring Elementary, Chickahominy Middle, and Atlee High.
Wednesday, October 5, is National Walk to School Day. Walk to School day started in 1997 and focuses on bringing awareness and support for our health as well the need for walkable communities. One of the best parts about Giles is our location, so get your walking shoes on and get ready to get outside for a quick walk to school on the first Wednesday in October.
We invite our residents to post their photos on social media using the hashtags #WalkToSchoolDay and #GilesWalksToSchool.
