There are several reasons to support walking and biking to school
- To enhance the health of kids; Increased physical activity can combat a host of health problems facing kids today.
- To improve air quality and the environment; replacing car trips to school with walking or bicycling can help reduce air pollution.
- To create safer routes for walking and bicycling; Sidewalks, education programs and traffic calming measures are some of the ways to improve conditions.
Get Fit Kauai has teamed with Kauai Police Department, the Department of Education, and the County of Kauai to improve safety around schools and encourage more children to walk and bike to school through Safe Routes to School program implementation.
If your school does not currently have a Safe Routes to School champion and would like to start an SRTS program at your school, use the form below to contact Bev Brody, director of Get Fit Kauai.
