According to the oficial International Walk to School webpage:

"In 2006, an estimated 5,000 schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia held Walk to School events"

"In 2007, millions of walkers from around the world walked to school"

Here in Alamosa, Colorado the International Walk to School Day is celebrated in early October. All the students from Alamosa are encouraged to meet at the local park early in the morning to walk to school.

Who Are They?

This is my second year participating. This time I walked over Boyd Elementary School with 2nd and 3rd graders. Boyd Elementary is just a mile away from the park.

It was wonderful to see parents, teachers and volunteers involved in such a fun event.

After the event, I spend some time with students at the cafeteria.

I can't believe that I've never heard about this! It does seem sad that such a thing even needs to exist, however. Any chance you can remind us of this next year?
