On Wednesday, October 4, the PawSox celebrated National Walk to School Day in the city of Providence. The club joined forces with Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza and Family Service RI to help make sure that students arrived to school safely and on time.
"Studies have shown that walking your child to school in the morning can help prevent chronic absenteeism, a problem that many schools in our community are facing," said PawSox Director of Communications & Community Relations, Joe Bradlee. "We hope that our mascot Paws made walking to school a memorable experience for some of the students at Fogarty Elementary School."
Joining the PawSox and Mayor Elorza on the walking route were also members of the Providence Fire Department.
