Safe Routes to School Launch + Walk to School Day

9:08 AM PDT on October 1, 2009

"Special morning ralley at Longfellow Elementary School with parents, teachers, pedestrian advocates and elected officials.

Parents and students will be taking to the sidewalks and forming 'walking school buses' all across the city when SF schools celebrate Walk to School Day, Oct. 7th. Walk to School Day is also the kick off for a new program that will help raise a new generation of walkers and bikers. The new two-year Safe Routes to Schools program, funded by a $500,000 grant from the federal government, aims to make biking and walking to school easier for parents and kids through education, safer streets and incentives."
