As part of International Walk to School Day, members of \"safe kids southeast Wisconsin\" and children's hospital were joined by local community leaders and students from Auer Avenue school for a morning walk to talk about pedestrian safety. Children's Hospital's Lisa Klint-Simpson says the goal of the walk is to keep kids safe on their way to and from school.
\"Make sure when you're walking, you take the ear buds out so you can listen, and you put your cell phone down or your device down, so you're not distracted, so you can pay attention and you can see the drivers too.\" Klint-Simpson said.
Nearly 800 schools nationwide, including many locally, are taking part in walk to school day activities.
