This year, Parachute's Safe Kids Week will focus on the safety and health benefits of encouraging school-age children to engage in active transportation: that is, to walk, cycle or wheel to school or other nearby destinations, rather than be driven. 
While many parents believe their children are safer protected within the metal encasing of a vehicle, in fact, the proliferation of car drop-offs and pick-ups in school zones create dangers for all children.
Parachute will be providing resources for their partners - from a social media guide to fact sheets and suggested activities - later in the spring. Check back to parachute.ca/safekidsweek for more information later in the spring and follow the hashtag #SKW2022.
