In Delphi, a $250,000 grant helped build trails and accessible ramps. In response to the grant announcement earlier this year, Delphi Mayor Randy Strasser said many of the routes students take are incomplete, forcing them to walk in the street until reaching a point where a sidewalk starts again.
Clearly, the Safe Routes to School program has had an impact on our communities. Now, it’s time to return the favor.
We encourage you to participate in Wednesday’s Walk to School Day. If you do, you’ll be among thousands of communities across the country making a statement that safe paths for pedestrians and the health of our kids are important.
If your child’s school isn’t participating in an official event, you can still participate as an individual.
If nothing else, it’ll be fun.
Trust us. We have experience walking to school.
