The city of Moscow is just one of thousands across the nation -- and world, planning for International Walk to School Month. Moscow is planning for their day of focus next week on October 12th.
The city’s program, Safe Routes to School is encouraging all students to walk or bike to school to celebrate the advocacy for healthier living.
Schools will receive help from parents, college students, athletes and even local police who will monitor school zones like they do every day for students.
The group behind Walk to School Month started in 1997 as a way to bring together community leaders and kids to build awareness of walkable communities.
