The weather is quickly cooling off from summer, so why not walk to school? Bundling up is as fun as a barrel of monkeys and creates character, right? Plus, when kids are older, they can literally say: “Back in my day, I walked to school up hill both ways and in the snow.”
October is International Walk to School Month which means participating schools and organizations will bring awareness to community issues like physical activity, clean air, pedestrian safety and family connections.
The group behind Walk to School Month started in 1997 as a way to bring together community leaders and kids to build awareness of walkable communities.
