WAYNE – October 10 is National Walk to School Day and Wayne State College students would like to invite local students, staff and faculty to walk to campus Wednesday.
This event was created to raise awareness for making healthy and environmentally friendly choices in their everyday lives. Burning fossil fuels during one’s daily commute to campus increases emissions that damage our environment as walking to school is a great way to exercise and save money.
According to a release, students of Dr. Dendinger’s Business Ethics class have been working to exercise and save money.
Environmental stewardship is one value that helps companies reduce costs and conserve resources. Students in the class chose to put this project together to raise awareness for a cause they find themselves passionate about.
To support this day, the students are asking you to leave the keys at home and walk to school on October 10th. If you are not within a reasonable enough distance to walk to campus, they ask that you carpool with others to show support and conserve energy.
Students, staff and faculty can pledge to take part in this event by filling out this very short survey:
