National Walk to School Day

Today is Walk to School Day.

According to this Safe Routes to School article “nearly 50% of American kids walked to school in 1969 and today that figure is 13%. Parents dropping their kids at school account for 25% of morning traffic. The number of children who are overweight or obese has tripled in the last 25 years. And studies have shown that children who are physically active have improved mood and concentration, a stronger self-image, and more self-confidence.”
