Brake’s Kids Walk, previously known as Brake’s Giant Walk and Walking Bus, is back!
On Wednesday 13th June, thousands of children aged 4-11 from across the Country will put their best feet forward to promote road safety and the health and planet-saving benefits of walking.
Short supervised walks can take place at or around school, with children walking in a crocodile formation and holding hands to promote the importance of kids being able to walk without fear or threat from traffic.
The walk, co-ordinated by Brake, the road safety charity, promotes road safety and the health and planet-saving benefits of walking, whilst getting the children to raise awareness of important road safety messages in their community.
Like you, Brake is passionate about the safety and welfare of children. They believe it’s every child’s right to be able to walk in their communities without fear of traffic and pollution. But to do this, it’s essential to make sure their journeys to school, home and shops are safe.
This project aims to inspire and engage children about the dangers they face and help Brake call on grown ups to make their streets safer. They can do this by having footpaths, cycle paths, safe places to cross, slow traffic and clean traffic. Brake believe these 5 messages are important so we can stop the 5 children who are being killed or hurt on our roads every single day!
