With Bike to School Day approaching on Wed. May 8, Fairfax Times has a good article on the efforts of FABB's Jeff Anderson to encourage more kids to bike to school, not only at his school in Vienna but at schools throughout the Fairfax school system. From the article Vienna parent’s bike-to-school message spreads: Five-year-old program promotes health, environmental awareness for kids:
Wolftrap Principal Teresa Khuluki said, “Mr. Anderson works tirelessly to ensure student safety, while promoting physical fitness. Those students who bike to school arrive energized and ready to start their school day. His program also decreases the amount of cars in our kiss-and-ride [student drop-off/pick-up loop], and I often hear him congratulating the students who bike for helping the environment by lessening carbon emissions in Vienna. We are thrilled to have this program at Wolftrap and encourage other schools to start their own bike train.”
Kudos to Jeff for all the work he does getting more kids on bikes. Is your school holding a Bike to School Day event? If not, why not consider offering to help organize an event?
