WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- More than 50 Kansas schools will participate in International Walk to School Day on Wednesday.

The idea is to encourage physical activity and teach children pedestrian safety. The schools plan organized walks to school and lessons on safety.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/UDu2UF ) Safe Kids Kansas Inc. is one of several groups promoting the annual event. Cherie Sage of Safe Kids Kansas says parents are encouraged to participate in the events.

Sage says adults should show children hazards they might encounter while walking, act as role models and help them learn to be safer pedestrians.
