Brake the road safety charity hosts Giant Walk

Thousands of children across the UK set off from their school gates in June 2015, celebrating the wonders of walking by taking part in Brake's Giant Walk.

This annual event is a fantastic way for children to put their best feet forwards for road safety: to say "yes!" to the health and planet-saving benefits of walking, and "no!" to fast driving that threatens children's safety. The UK has a poor record for protecting children on foot and bike compared to many European neighbours. Half our children are driven to school, increasing pollution, danger and damaging health.

Every year schools who take part are sent a free Giant Walk pack including a banner, posters, tips on making the walk fun and safe, and ideas for curriculum-relevant road safety and active travel projects in the classroom. The event is also a great opportunity to raise funds for Brake's work stopping casualties and caring for the victims (we send out sponsorship envelopes for children to take home, that include top road safety tips for families.)

If you want to register for Brake's Giant Walk in 2016, which will take place on Wednesday 15 June, you can register online here.
