International Walk to School Day is tomorrow (WED). MnDOT’s Dave Cowan says there are many benefits to walking or biking to school, including…

“Creating safe and walkable routes to school, building a sense of community or school spirit and inspiring families to use their feet for the school commute a little more often.”

The annual event, sponsored by Minnesota Safe Routes to School, aims to make walking and bicycling more visible in communities and reduce traffic congestion. So far, at least 150 Minnesota schools have registered Walk to School Day events so far.
