Walk to School Day



International Walk to School Month is in October and we were fortunate enough to work with a Montvue Elementary School in Pomona. The rain might have made us reschedule the original date of Wednesday the 9th, but on Friday the 18th, hundreds of kids walked and biked to Montvue Elementary. Walking and biking to school is a habit we support as it promotes exercise, has health benefits, cleans the air and environment, promotes street safety  and is fun! None of this could have been accomplished had it not been for the spirit and enthusiasm of Principle Alejandro Villa, who helped set up the event and get the parents involved. A big thank to Council Women Paula Lantz for connecting us to the school and supporting this event. Walk to School day is supported by the National Center for Safe Routes to School a program we strongly support and encourage.
