Walk This Way

Georgia Walk to School Day: Held the 1st Wednesday in March, Georgia Walk to School Day is sponsored by the Georgia Safe Routes to School Resource Center. This annual event encourages schools to promote safe and healthy walking and bicycling habits by hosting walking and bicycling events for their students, parents and staff.

International Walk to School Day: Held the 1st Wednesday in October, this event is meant to raise awareness and educate people about safe walking and bicycling practices. Sponsored by FedEx through Safe Kids Worldwide events are held all around the world.

Halloween: Children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a vehicle and killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year. Through Safe Kids Worldwide, FedEx provides funding to local Safe Kids Coalitions to distribute reflective items and educational materials to promote visibility and raise awareness about Halloween Safety.
