The program’s grand kickoff event was International Walk to School Day on October 5, 2011. Echo Park students gathered at Alimagnet Park and walked to school along County Road 11 accompanied by Burnsville Police officers, Echo Park and City staff. International Walk to School Day is a global event where communities from over 40 countries walk and bike to school on a single day. Families, schools and communities around the globe walk and bicycle to school in celebration of Walk to School Day every October.
