Walk to School Day a big success – and Willow Glen Lions helped!

On October 12, 2012, Students, parents, and teachers of San Jose’s River Glen Elementary and Willow Glen Elementary — as well as local non-profit and community organizations such as the Willow Glen Lions Club, Zanotto’s Market, Walgreen’s, and Willow Glen Business Association— participated in Walk to School Day.

Oversized characters greeted kids and did tricks for them! Posing for photos, local politicians smiled for the camera and talked to parents. Yellow balloons floated overhead, making it an even more beautiful and fun event!

The crowd of children, parents and volunteers bustled around among the yellow balloons, outrageous characters danced and played with the kids and generous businesses were on hand to participate in the festivities.
