Students, parents and educators are walking or biking to school today in New Bedford. It's the annual International Walk or Bike to School Day.

Mass in Motion New Bedford coordinator Kim Ferreira says at least a dozen schools in New Bedford are taking part.

Ferreira tells WBSM News, she also wants to see children moving around everyday.

Mayor Jon Mitchell is joining students at the Hathaway Elementary School this morning, speaking with them about the importance of physical activity, and walking around the school with students and teachers.
