Glendale, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Salem Lutheran School is excited to participate this year in “Walktober” on October 9th. The program first started in 1997, eventually becoming an international event. Salem Lutheran School, as well as other schools in the community, is encouraging students to walk to school because it is fun, encourages healthier habits, helps reduce environmental impact, decreases traffic congestion as well as helps support the need to build better infrastructure for walking.
At Salem, students who walk to school will receive stickers, an activity sheet, as well as a free fruit rope provided by Clif Kids, the makers of the Clif Bar. Students will also sign a special commemorative banner saying that they walked to school for the day.
