International Walk to School Day

October 9 is International Walk to School Day. We’re teaming up with FedEx to host events across the country that teach kids all the fun things about walking to school.  It all happens while they’re outside, active and having fun, which is the best way to learn 

To celebrate, we’ve got some important information to share with you. It just takes a few minutes of your time to take this information and talk to your kids about safe walking.

This one-of-a-kind video  shows how road safety is truly a global the issue that affects everyone, whether you live in United States or halfway around the world in South Africa. Just listen to the voices of children from around the world explaining why road safety and safe places to walk are so important.

Have you ever been somewhere as a child and then gone back as an adult and seen things in a completely new light? One of our staff members recently traveled back to the Ukraine to see her hometown. She wrote a blog about her experience, and all the things she saw now that she never saw as a child. It’s a great read and might make you look at your own world a little bit differently.
