i-WALK on Wednesday!

On Wednesday it is International iwalk to school day!  The children and families of our community are encouraged to walk to school.  This initiative is not only fun but aims to bring forth a permanent change in communities across the globe.  Below are just a few of its goals:

*Encourage physical activity by teaching children the skills to walk safely, how to identify safe routes to school and the benefits of walking
