ILLINOIS — When’s the last time you walked your child to school?

The Illinois Department of Transportation is encouraging people around the state to take part in the International Walk to School Day. It takes place October 5.

Officials say it’s a great opportunity to promote walking to and from school. Last year, 128 schools participated and parents say they’d like to see that number go up.

It’s the 20th year for the event.
