Unable to drive, mother with epilepsy cherishes daily walks
KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) — A Utah mother has started walking her children to school every day after an epilepsy diagnosis prevented her from driving.
The Deseret News reports Trishelle Duncan says the morning walks help her family communicate better and appreciate nature.
The mother of six walks her 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son to school each day in Kaysville. Her 3-year-old son comes with them.
The Kaysville family is among the 1,100 participants in September for a Utah Department of Transportation program encouraging people to walk or bike to school by offering a prize contest where winners get bikes, scooters and helmets.
Duncan says walking helps her physical help and leads to nice conservations with her children. Her daughter also likes the new morning routine because she can spend more time with her mom.
