Birthday Run to Make Safer Streets for Children

On April 22nd, which will be my 67th birthday, my goal is to run my 'age of 67 miles' beginning at San Bernardino City Hall, running along historic Route 66, and finishing at the Santa Monica Pier. 

I am running to support and bring awareness to Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE), a non-profit whose mission is aiming to improve the quality of life for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers alike by working to reduce traffic-caused injuries and fatalities. SAFE addresses this problem in a holistic fashion through direct education, broad awareness campaigns, partnerships, community outreach, policy and legislation, support for those impacted.

Every year, 40,000 people are killed nationwide as a result of traffic collisions and hundreds of thousands more severely injured. The most affected population is children. Traffic collisions are the #1 killer of children in Los Angeles County, and this is almost 100% preventable! The safety of our kids should be TOP priority. 

SAFE is currently sponsoring a bill (SB 735) that is working to increase safety in school zones by implementing speed safety cameras. As a school crossing guard, I have saved numerous children from so many reckless drivers who run stoplights or speed through a school crossing. SB 735 and the other safety campaigns and other safety campaigns ran by SAFE are essential to make safer streets for all road users, including all of you! For more information on SB 735, click here.

All funds will go directly to support SAFE's legislative efforts and awareness campaigns. 

Please give what you can to support this organization and save countless young lives from being cut short due to traffic violence.
