OKLAHOMA CITY (October 3, 2016)Shape Your Future is encouraging students, families, communities and schools across Oklahoma to “walk n’ roll” during the 20th Annual Walk or Bike to School Day on October 5.

Finding easy ways to include physical activity in daily routines is more important than ever. More than one in three Oklahoma kids are obese or overweight, placing them at increased risk for long-term health problems such as type 2 diabetes or cardiovascular disease. They are also at greater risk of becoming obese adults.

The Oklahoma County TSET Healthy Living Program grantee partnered with EMBARK, formerly Oklahoma City’s Metro Transit, as the public transit organization made its move to tobacco-free properties on Aug. 1, 2016.

All tobacco products, including cigarettes, vaping or e-cigarette devices and chewing tobacco are now prohibited at EMBARK’s transit stops, shelters, facilities and vehicles.
