Kids participate in Walk & Roll to School Day
Submitted By Tess Lengyel
On October 9, Students from more than 100 elementary, middle, and high schools in Alameda County walked, bicycled, scootered, skateboarded, carpooled or rode transit to school along with parents, teachers and community leaders on International Walk & Roll to School Day.
ÒRecent studies are demonstrating what weÕve all experienced - that kids who bike or walk to school concentrate better,Ó said Alameda CTC Chair Supervisor Scott Haggerty. ÒIÕm pleased that there is such extensive support in Alameda County and in our schools for supporting active, healthy transportation options for kids and families.Ó
Sponsored by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC), this yearÕs event was considered among the largest on record with close to 65,000 students participating.
