To compliment the TMAís Walk to School program, Hudson continues to encourage walking
through the Golden Sneaker Award Program. Students in grades 2 and 3 are given pedometers to see
who can walk the most. The class with the highest number of steps is awarded the Golden Sneaker Trophy.
Small and simple changes in our daily routine can save tons of carbon emissions from polluting
the air we breathe. Walking to the store or school as well as just taking a short walk for
pleasure benefits our health as well as our planet.
