Versailles Group Promotes Healthier Students

June 27, 2014

Community members in Versailles are taking part in a multinational program aimed at creating and establishing healthy habits for students.

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs engage parents, schools, community leaders and government agencies to improve the well-being of children by encouraging them to walk or bike to school.

Local committee members will reveal plans this weekend on how to increase walking and bicycling in the area for students and adults, according to The Versailles Republican.

Versailles SRTS will host an informational booth at the Ripley County Courthouse square Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The newspaper stated students in grades K-8 can register Saturday for Bike Training and Rodeo in September, giving them a chance to win a bicycle.
