Families across Cumbria will be leaving their cars at home to take part in Walk to School Week, which runs from 16-20 May.
More than 10,000 pupils at 63 schools across the county are taking part in this year’s national campaign, which encourages pupils and parents to go to school by foot, reducing the number of cars on the road.
Last year, the event in Cumbria saved 15,000 car journeys during the week.
Walk to School Week is run nationally by Living Streets, a charity which campaigns on behalf of pedestrians and encourages more people to take up walking.
One in five cars on the road in the morning rush hour is on the school run. Leaving the car at home, and choosing to walk all or part of your journey means less congestion, healthier children and less stress at the school gates.
