Julia Landon College Prep and Hendricks Avenue Elementary joined schools from around the world today to celebrate International Walk to School Day.
Approximately 175 students from Landon participated today along with parents, teachers and community leaders.
In the U.S., International Walk to School Day was expected to be celebrated at over 3,500 events at participating schools. Walkers from the U.S. joined 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.
