International Walk to School Day is Another Success!
In spite of a few raindrops, the 2012 International Walk to School Day was another big success this year. All Children's Hospital, in conjunction with Florida Suncoast Safe Kids and Safe Routes to School, is making a difference to reduce the number of child pedestrian deaths and injuries in our community. International Walk to School Day was a fun and effective way to promote health and safety for kids walking to school.
Students, parents and teachers from more than 60 schools in the Tampa Bay area participated in the walk on Wednesday, Oct. 3. Special guests walking with the students included Tampa Bay Rays' mascot Raymond and St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster.
