The only problem I see with having Walk to School day set for April or May
is that it is towards the end of the traditional school year, and any
increase in walking to school will most likely disappear over the summer.
Having walk to school day at the beginning of the year encourages people to
make it a habit right away, and if they keep it up through the school year,
they are more likely to make a long-term habit of it.
That doesn't, of course, address your very valid concern with our northern
populations. But anyplace that doesn't have those special cases would be
wise to have their event towards the beginning of the school year...

Wouldn't April or May be a better time for this event?
I mean, October makes it a little rough on anyone in
Alaska (I am probably now the only person in the state
who has heard of your little campaign, no doubt for
that very reason). And probably parts of Canada, and
Scandinavia as well (that would be more of a concern,
I think). There's almost certainly going to be snow on
the ground by then, here.
