UK student-athletes participate in National Walk to School Day event

Fayette County Schools once again celebrated National Walk to School Day this morning. The national event, observed on the first Wednesday of October each year, is sponsored by Safe Kids Fayette County, a childhood injury prevention program led by University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital.

The purpose of the event is to address pedestrian safety by forming a “walking school bus” of students, families and teachers who walk several blocks to various elementary schools around Lexington.  University of Kentucky football student-athletes Max Godby and Jordan Watson, pictured below, took part in Millcreek Elementary School’s Walk to School Day activities this morning.
