Bains Elementary School students, teachers, administrators and members of the West Feliciana Parish community participated in the first President’s Walk on March 31 along U.S. 61 in St. Francisville.

With perfect weather, the group walked from Bains Elementary to the West Feliciana Sports Park, a distance of over 2.25 miles.

At the park, the students from third, fourth and fifth grades enjoyed 60 minutes of play time, competing in activities to encourage them to embrace an active lifestyle, school officials said.

The program was funded through a grant as part of Kohl’s Cares: Move Your Feet, Let’s Defeat Childhood Obesity.
