SC Safe Routes to School Resource Center Kick-Off

This from our friends at the SC Safe Routes to School Resource Center (a program of the SC Department of Transportation)!

The South Carolina Safe Routes to School Resource Center is happy to announce a series of kick-off events unveiling the new, and continuing, free resources available to every K-8 grade school in the state.

Safe Routes to School is a federally-funded nationwide program designed to encourage more children to walk and bike to school. Safe Routes to School addresses many of the major issues that our communities face:

  • Increasing threats of childhood obesity and obesity-related health problems
  • Inadequate or unsafe pedestrian and bicycle travel routes
  • Deteriorating air quality and increases in pollution due to harmful emissions
  • Rising traffic congestion and motor vehicle accidents

Come learn more about South Carolina’s Safe Routes to School Resource Center, explore your role within the SRTS community, meet the South Carolina Resource Center staff and find out about the many SRTS programs available in our own backyard.
