Walk and Roll to School in Marquette

Police officers were on hand early this morning as kids in Marquette took part in a special program.

The Walk and Roll to School program encourages kids to walk or bike to school.

In Marquette, children from the Lake Superior Village were escorted by members of the YMCA of Marquette County and other volunteers as they made their way to school.

As the program continues, the students won’t be escorted the entire way.

They’ll get assistance at the busier streets and intersections along the route from volunteers.
