Oct 20, 2014

City of McKinney Firefighters Assist with Walk to School DayStudents and parents at Sonntag Elementary School gathered early the morning of October 8 near Westridge and Reagan Drive to walk to school as a group.

It was part of the celebration for International Walk to School Day, an effort to encourage children to get regular physical activity and form healthy habits to last a lifetime.

Firefighters from the City of McKinney were on hand to help promote health and safety, and students enjoyed a brief tour of a fire truck before heading to class. 

Carissa, the new female mascot from Heritage High School, helped lead the group of students and parents on their walk, along with members of the Heritage girls’ soccer team and Frisco Mayor Maher Maso.

Students were also encouraged to wear orange clothing as part of the event, dubbed "Orange You Glad You Walked to School Day."
