Hudson students will be joining students from across the country and around the world in celebrating International Walk/Bike to School Day. In Hudson, we will be celebrating the day on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011, with a Rain Date of Thursday, Oct. 13th.
This years theme is Hike It, Bike It, Like It! The 2011 slogan was submitted by Horace Mann Elementary School (Oak Park, Ill.) students through a first-ever online contest. Their school was awarded a mini-grant to promote year-round healthy activities. Hopefully, as our network grows we will be able to promote walkng and riding to school in even bigger ways, and who knows, we may be the slogan winner!

Our Spring Bike/Walk to School Day was a great success, despite the rainy weather we had that May morning. Those that choose to walk or ride that day had fun, and there were reports of decreased lines of traffic around the schools. (See earlier post)
Please put this event Walk/Bike to School Day, Wed. Oct. 12 on your calendars, and watch and listen for school announcements for details. If you would like to coordinate a group from your neighborhood, contact Leslie Daly firstname.lastname@example.org or Laura Jones
