Blue Zones Project has partnered with local school districts to create environments that support student and faculty health.
Walking School Bus
Walking School Bus Volunteers walk the ‘bus’ along the designated route, picking up registered children along the route and safely walking with the children to school. There are currently 36 Walking School Bus routes at 14 schools in the Beach Cities. All eight Redondo Beach Unified School District elementary schools participate.
Children who walk to school:
- Are more alert and ready to learn
- Strengthen their social networks
- Develop lifetime fitness habits
- Help reduce traffic
- Learn to be good/safe pedestrians
