California Walk to School Day is tomorrow, Oct 5. Slow down, watch out for young pedestrians!

October is International Walk to School Month. Ask your local school if they are participating in this great event. Why walk to school?

• Encourage physical activity by teaching children the skills to walk safely, how to identify safe routes to school, and the benefits of walking.
• Raise concern for and awareness of the environment, your neighborhood, and your health.
• Reduce traffic congestion, pollution, and speed near schools.
• Share time with your family, friends, and neighbors.

California's Walk to School Week is October 3-7, 2011 and Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 5, 2011. Weather permitting tomorrow, schedule the time, and walk your children to school on the 5th!

When driving tomorrow, or any day for that matter, please be mindful of our young pedestrians and take extra care in our neighborhoods and near our schools.
