NEW CDC PROGRAM TO PROMOTE BICYCLING AND WALKING:
To support the national goal of better health through physical
activity, the Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity at the CDC has
developed a program guide to promote children walking to school. This
program entitled "KidsWalk-to-School" is a community-based program that
to increase opportunities for daily physical activity by encouraging
children to walk or bike to and from school in groups accompanied by
At the same time, the program encourages communities to build
with the school, PTA, local police department, department of public
civic associations, local politicians, and businesses to create an
environment that is supportive of walking and bicycling to school
