Safe Routes to School


Bike Walk Knoxville is 1 of 52 partner agencies United Way of Greater Knoxville supports and provides funding!  Bike Walk Knoxville was awarded a 3 year United Way grant to expand the Knox County Safe Routes to School Partnership program to more elementary schools including development of the Walking School Bus and pilot Bike Train programs.  Safe Routes to School programs provide ways for school children to walk and ride bikes to and from school with their friends and volunteer adults in a safe environment. 

Safe Routes to School in Knox County is making a difference because:

On March 22nd, Bike Walk Knoxville in partnership with United Way of Greater Knoxville, Graystone Presbyterian Church, and the Great Schools Partnership launched Dogwood Elementary’s first Walking School Bus (WSB)! Nine students walked with teachers and volunteers to meet their parents at nearby Graystone Presbyterian after school. A special thank you to the Graystone congregation for sharing their space and to all those who volunteered. The Dogwood WSB will be walking every Thursday from now until the end of the semester.

Dogwood is also getting moving with Friday Morning Fun Walks before school around the greenway every week.
