Mayor Jane Castor will celebrate National Walk to School Day at MacFarlane Park Elementary Magnet School with the unveiling of the 10th Crosswalks to Classrooms street mural at 1721 N. Macdill Ave. on October 6th at 8a.m.
The mayor will join walk-to-school organization Sidewalk Stompers in welcoming students walking and biking from neighboring MacFarlane Park across the newly-painted, high-emphasis crosswalk. Volunteers from Sidewalk Stompers and Walk Bike Tampa will be on hand to celebrate the day with small prizes for student rewards.
The newest Crosswalk to Classroom at MacFarlane Park was sponsored by MacFarlane Park Elementary School’s Class of 2021 and Walk Bike Tampa.
“National Walk to School Day recognizes the importance of giving children safe and healthy routes to school,” said Emily Hinsdale, President of Sidewalk Stompers. “Keeping kids active and engaged in their community helps not just their own health, but the health of our whole city. We are delighted to have Mayor Castor join us to demonstrate Tampa’s commitment to Vision Zero, making safe mobility a goal for everyone and especially for our school children.”
