On Wednesday, October 3, 2012, school children from all 50 states joined thousands across the world who are making the commitment to lead healthier lifestyles by walking or bicycling to school on International Walk to School Day 2012.
Organizers say that there is encouraging evidence that more and more schools are holding Walk to School Day events as catalysts to getting kids up and active all year long.
This year, 42 schools in Brevard County, Florida participated. Fifty percent of Walk to School Day participation in the nine counties that make up FDOT District 5, came from Brevard County schools.
This is the largest number of schools ever reported as participating in Walk to School Day events.
