PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) -

It's International Walk to School Day, and several Coast schools are taking part. Pass Christian Elementary got its students involved.

P.E. teacher Payton Ragon took the initiative to get his school on board with the international movement. He said his school is on board with the meaning behind the day, which is to promote healthy living and safe routes to school.

Since many of his students live too far away to actually walk to the school, Ragon had his students parade around the school throughout the day.

Jonathan Brannan will tell you more about this international initiative to get kids moving later tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
