Heart of New Ulm Project, Safe Routes to School promoting walking in the winter
NEW ULM, Minn. (KEYC) - The Heart of New Ulm Project and Safe Routes to School displayed pages from “Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats and “Wendy’s Winter Walk” by Cass Kim on a walking route around Jefferson Elementary School.
It’s all to promote walking to school even when it is a little bit colder outside.
New Ulm Safe Routes to School representatives say that this walk is a great way to get kids their daily exercise.
“Kids are able to walk to school they gain a bigger sense of independence, depending on how long their walk is they almost get their daily exercise. They need. In a time when obesity or childhood obesity is on the rise,” New Ulm Safe Routes to School coordinator, Sam Gatton said.
The pages will be traveling to another school next week.
