Mitzi Bond Elementary students celebrate National Walk to School Day

Students at Bond Elementary School on Wednesday woke up a little earlier than normal to celebrate a holiday that not many people know about.

October 2 is National Walk to School Day, and dozens of Bond students, along with their families and teachers, gathered at a nearby Whataburger to have breakfast together and then safely walk over to the school located at 250 Lindbergh Avenue.

The holiday has become a favorite event for the Bond community each year, and the students enjoy the thrill of having a nice stroll through their neighborhood on their way to learn.

National Walk to School Day is celebrated the first Wednesday of each October as a way to promote exercise among young children and their families. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise. It isn’t hard on our joints and feet like running and jogging but still gives us all the advantages.

The goal of this day is to raise awareness and support for the health, community and environmental benefits of regularly walking or biking to school.
