WalkSafe Eva Robinson 1WalkSafe® is a three-day curriculum created by the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine that aims to decrease the number of children injured as pedestrians, increase physical activity, and encourage the use of walkable environments. The curriculum combines classroom instruction, interactive practice through physical education, and conceptual learning through art class culminating in submissions to the annual poster contest.

Best Foot Forward and OCPS teamed up with WalkSafe to educate students about pedestrian safety. This year 27 elementary schools and 17,315 students took part in the curriculum – an increase of 34 percent from last year.
