Local Students Rise and Shine for Walk to School Day

It's a national movement that takes place in over 40 countries - and Northern Michigan is not missing out on the fun.

This morning Willow Hill Elementary School students and their families were encouraged to walk to school.

A group met at Darrow Park and made the 40 minute hike to be greeted with a healthy snack at school.

Willow Hill participated in Walk to School day last year as well - but this year staff is combining the initiative with a grant called Fuel Up 60.

Both ideas promote healthy lifestyles to children.
