Walking to School

Francis C. Hammond Middle School Campus was among 25 schools selected to receive a mini-grant from the National Center for Safe Routes to School. Students will establish an Outdoor Activity Sampler Club focusing on the environment, physical exercise and safety. The National Center received 247 SRTS mini-grant applications from schools and community organizations across 44 states and the District of Columbia. Selected proposals distinguished themselves through originality of efforts to help lead local community efforts to promote safe walking and bicycling to school, including the strong involvement of students, protecting the environment, promoting physical activity, and the implementation of measurable activities. For more information, please contact Caroline Dickson at the National Center for Safe Routes to School at 919-962-5835 or dickson@hsrc.unc.edu.

It’s a pity that on the same day as reading this, two people have said that they don’t believe the City takes its duty to create safe sidewalks seriously
