Safe Routes To School Summit Reminder

This is your reminder to register for the second annual Washington Safe Routes to School Summit if you haven't already. It's Nov. 14 here in Spokane.

Only one out of every 8 children walks to school anymore. Most ride the bus or get a ride. This is leading to less active children, less connected neighbors, and lower air quality. Don't miss this opportunity for parents, educators, administrators, law enforcement, and others to be part of the solution.

Learn from experts in the field from all across the Northwest about:
Getting your program off the ground, innovations and success stories from around the state, mobilizing parents and administration, and sustaining programs.
