The Walking School Bus
Fewer children are walking and biking to school, and more children are at risk of becoming overweight. The simple act of walking to school can add much needed exercise into a child's daily routine. A walking school bus is a group of children walking to school with one or more adults. Getting into a healthy routine early is as simple as walking to school. Every October, International Walk to School Day gives children, parents, teachers and community leaders an opportunity to be part of a global event.
