International Walk to School Day

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Hundreds of students from Price Lab Elementary and NU High School gathered at Seerley Park in Cedar Falls Wednesday morning. 

They were celebrating International Walk to School Day. It promotes walking safe routes to school.

UNI basketball players and swimmers were there to walk with the students. Organizers say it's not only important to promote safe walking routes, but to also promote being active.

"All of Cedar Falls and all our communities and everywhere needs to be aware of safe routes for kids walking to school and that kids need to be active and moving at all times and we just want the kids to have fun when they are doing their activities," said Price Lab teacher Shelley McCumber.

Kittrell Elementary School in Waterloo is also taking part in Walk to School Day. They will be walking around the school Thursday morning.
