Golden Sneaker contest
Submitted By Tess Lengyel
Students in more than 60 schools in Alameda County will walk, bike and carpool as much as possible for two weeks to win the "Pollution Solution Golden Sneaker Contest" as part of the Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools Program, funded by the Alameda County Transportation Commission and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. The contest, March 4-15, encourages families to become actively involved in reducing pollution. Families that live too far from school to walk or bike can still participate by parking several blocks away and walking to school together, taking the bus or carpooling.
For a complete list of participating schools contact Nora Cody, Director of Safe Routes to Schools at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the Safe Routes to School Program, visit www.alamedacountysr2s.org
