Hurricane Creek Elementary in Bryant will be joining schools from around the world to celebrate International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Approximately 250 students will be walking to school, along with parents, teachers and community leaders.
The event will begin at 7 a.m., with kids, parents and community leaders walking from many designated stations in the neighborhoods around the school.[more]
In the U.S., International Walk to School Day is expected to include 5,000 schools from all 50 states. Walkers from the U.S. will join children and adults in 40 countries around the world.
Walk to School events work to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion, concern for the environment and building connections between families, schools and the broader community.
