This year marks the ninth year that Safe Kids and FedEx have teamed up for the Walk This Way program. Walk this Way is a grassroots pedestrian safety initiative in more than 600 schools nationwide, and many schools throughout the Tampa Bay area. This year, 158 Safe Kids coalitions across the country held more than 600 local events at elementary schools to teach children how to walk safely and to spotlight a particular pedestrian danger or issue in each community.
If you would like more information about how you and your school can participate in next year's event, please contact the Florida Suncoast Safe Kids Coalition, at 800-756-SAFE. Additional information is also available at www.allkids.org/walk.
