Today is International Walk - To - School day. Kids and families are encouraged to walk or bike their kids to school.

Walk - To - School day doesn't just promote healthy exercise for your kids, and give the environment a break. It also aims to kids about the importance of safety while they walk.

Every year, about 25,000 child pedestrians are injured by motor vehicles. The program hopes to reduce that number by teaching children pedestrian and bicycle skills.
