Making Suburbs More Walkable to Benefit Kids

A city school district in southern Texas has come up with a new way to combat childhood obesity that also makes their neighborhoods more walkable - by constructing new sidewalks, redesigning crosswalks, and adding bike racks to two dozen school campuses in Edinburg, TX, almost all of which are elementary schools. The team behind the construction plans hopes to make it easier and safer for Edinburg students to walk to school, and make Edinburg in general a healthier place for families to live. It's a state-funded project that comes from Michelle Obama's Let's Move program to help kids become more active and reduce obesity. Walkability benefits everyone!
