Over the past 40 years, rates of obesity have soared among children of all ages in the United States, and approximately 25 million children and adolescents—more than 33 percent—are now overweight or obese or at risk of becoming so. In 1969, approximately 50 percent of children walked or bicycled to school; today, fewer than 15 percent of schoolchildren walk or bicycle to school. As a result, kids today are less active, less independent, and less healthy.

Your contribution can reverse these trends. Supporting the mission of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership to advocate for safe walking and bicycling to and from schools, and in daily life makes a difference in the health of children and fosters livable, sustainable communities. Whatever you can contribute - $5, $50 or $500 - provides vital generating operating funds to the National Partnership and your generous donation is 100% tax-deductible. Thank you.
