DURANT, Okla. -- There was a little extra foot traffic in Durant on Wednesday, as a community effort was made to get kids moving and save gas at the same time.

The Durant city council proclaimed Wednesday as Durant Walk and Roll to School Day. They set up key meeting locations for kids and parents to meet before school, and then Durant police officers and city and school officials -- with some help from Southeastern Oklahoma State University -- .all walked the students to school.

"There are students gathering all over town, and this is just an exciting day to get kids in the mindset that we want them to get out and be more physically active to promote healthy lifestyles," Durant grant coordinator Rebecca Parr said.
