-A A +A

TELL CITY – Wednesday is International Walk to School in the USA Day. William Tell Elementary students, as well as Tell City Junior-Senior High students, will participate in this day.

The group will meet at the Perry County Public Library – Tell City Branch at approximately 7 a.m. with the walk to designated schools beginning around 7:15 a.m. The community is welcome to walk with the students.

The annual International Walk to School Month gives children, parents, schoolteachers and community leaders an opportunity to be part of a global event as they celebrate the many benefits of walking.

The goal of the walk varies from community to community. Some walks rally for safer and improved streets, some to promote healthier habits and some to conserve the environment.

Whatever the reason, International Walk to School events encourage a more walkable world – one community at a time, organizers said.
