Do your kids walk to school?

If not, consider having them try it on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014, during International Walk to School Day.

The event is part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school. Worldwide, communities in more than 40 countries participate in the day by encouraging students to walk or ride their bikes to school.

By walking to school, kids are building more exercise into their days. Exercise helps children develop healthy bodies and minds and do better in school.

So join in! See you on the way to school Wednesday, Oct. 8!
