Walking bus encourages healthy route to school
from Litchfield Independent Review
Olivia Wicklund, a freshman at Litchfield High School in Litchfield, Conn., is coordinating a "walking school bus" aimed at encouraging school children to walk to school. The start date was significant, Wicklund said, because Oct. 6 was National Walk to School Day, an observance focused on helping to get school children more active through an energizing walk to school. "It brings generations of people together, all working toward a common goal," Wicklund said of the walking school bus idea. "It provides physical fitness. It's environmentally friendly, and it's budget friendly. It's an alternate way to get to school."
