Walk to School Day Oct. 3

The Cambridge Medical Center will be joining students from Cambridge Primary and Intermediate School to walk to school on Wednesday, Oct. 3, along with parents, teachers and other community leaders.

The event will begin at 7:30 a.m. with kids, parents and community leaders walking from Cambridge Medical Center (701 S. Dellwood St.). They will leave for school at 7:45 a.m.

The Cambridge Medical Center is glad to host Walk to School Day to raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between families, schools and the broader community.
