‘Revere Walks:’ WalkBoston micro documentary advocates for Safe Routes to School

In 1969, about half of all American children walked or biked to school, today that number is less than 15%. As a result, kids today are less active, less independent and less healthy. Not only are children today less likely to get their recommended amount of daily activity, but the morning rush of cars during pick up and drop off makes the air around schools thick with pollution. Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs are designed to reverse this trend.
