Dennis Lab School students participate in International Walk to School Day

DECATUR - Safe Kids Macon County joined with FedEx volunteers and local school children Wednesday to raise awareness about pedestrian safety on International Walk to School Day.

More than 250,000 children from around the nation are taking part in the annual event by learning safe walking skills and encouraging the creation of safe working environments.  

Starting at about 8:15 a.m. in Decatur this morning, volunteers walked with children from multiple locations to Dennis Lab School.  Safe Kids Macon County coordinator Michelle Boatman said "It's so important to show our children that walking safely is important. Our children learn by mimicking what they see.  By walking with them on International Walk to School Day, we can show children how to walk safely."
