BATON ROUGE – The School of Kinesiology in the LSU College of Human Sciences & Education
will host a Safe Routes to Schools’ Walk to School Day Celebration on Wednesday, Oct.
10, from 2-3 p.m., at Buchanan Elementary School, located at 408 East Polk Street
in Baton Rouge.
This grant-funded program is designed to promote pedestrian and bicycle safety. The
school children have been working all semester, walking with pedometers and tracking
their activity on walking calendars. They have gathered in community and parent nights
and have had pedestrian safety and pedometer lessons. Now, they will receive the incentive
prizes they have been working towards in the pedometer challenge.
LSU School of Kinesiology students and faculty will lead the assembly by delivering healthy messages, congratulating the children individually and by class, and providing them with their prizes, which may include T-shirts, backpacks, sports bottles, sweatshirts, pedometers and more. Parents and the neighborhood community are also invited.
