Safe Routes to School programs encourage children and parents to walk, bike to school

Safe Routes to School currently funds a variety education programs to encourage parents and children to walk or bike to school. The programs, led by USF/CUTR, All Children’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital, and More Health Inc., cover the following counties: Polk, Manatee, Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco.
