Takoma Park wins national recognition

The Takoma Park Safe Routes to School program has received special recognition from the James L. Oberstar Safe Routes to School Award Committee. Only three communities nationwide received special recognition!

We are proud that a Greater Washington community has been recognized for their hard work! Special congratulations to Safe Routes to School Coordinator Lucy Neher who has created a year round Safe Routes to School program that ensures kids are educated about safe walking and bicycling and makes it fun to walk and bicycle to school. The school year in Takoma Park culminates in a  Safe Routes to School 5K run which encourages kids and the community to be physically active, is a fundraiser and a community bonding event.

 
We have profiled the work in Takoma Park here on the blog. Check out our best practices section and story about elementary pedestrian education. Also,Takoma Park has a video about their Safe Routes to School 5K run.

Congratulations again to Takoma Park Safe Routes to School program!
