East Lansing (WILX) -- Many local students will pass up a ride with mom or dad to walk to school Wednesday because it's National Walk To School Day.

That includes a group of students from East Lansing.

Organizers say walking to and from school is a great way to get kids to exercise and raises awareness about safer walking and biking routes.

More than 200 schools in the state are expected to take part in the day.
