Redwood City 2020 Presents a Family Fun Day to Celebrate   

Safe Routes to School Program
Fun, Fitness, and Safety
  • Saturday, June 22, 2013
    11 am – 4 pm
    Kennedy Middle School 2521 Goodwin Avenue

Families are invited for a day of fun, safety and fitness this Saturday, to join the fun with Redwood City’s Safe Routes to School Program!

This festive event will feature a lot of great activities, including:  

  • Miniature city traffic obstacle course for bicyclists and pedestrians to test their skills and knowledge.
  • A mobile rock wall will be set up for kids to climb, as a reward their participation in the safety portion of the event.
  • Ride a ‘blender bike’ to make smoothies, demonstrating the power of the pedal.
  • Giant traffic sign costume characters will be on hand to meet and greet the children. 
  • Parent workshops will be held to discuss the Safe Routes to School Program and the role this program can play in keeping their children safe and healthy.
  • A fun bike ride will be held at 3 pm to help ensure that young cyclists are ready to ride safely – all bicyclists must have their own bicycles and helmets.

This event is part the San Mateo County Office of Education‘s Safe Routes to School Program being implemented in Redwood City through the efforts of Redwood City 2020. Safe Routes to School encourages children to embark on a healthier lifestyle and support that goal by providing increased safety education, enforcement and infrastructure improvements that will help keep children safer when walking or biking to school. This program is made possible through a federally funded Safe Routes to School grant and administered by the San Mateo County Office of Education.
