Local Students Participate In Walk To School Day

Posted October 2, 2001

— The cool morning air did not prevent thousands of students across the Triangle from walking to school Tuesday morning.

The walk was in celebration of National Walk to School Day. Students from Northwoods Elementary in Cary started their trek from their local community center.

This year, students also used the day to proudly display their patriotism.

The goal of Walk To School Day is to promote physical activity and to make sure communities are safe for walking.

Students and parents took a

walkability survey

to answer safety questions.

As many as 600,000 people nationwide were expected to participate in the event.
