Thanks Kansas! It's been 3 years since Kansas passed the Indoor Clean Air law. Our public places are smokefree and Kansans are loving it! This is Heartland Healthy Neighborhoods contribution to a thank you card to Kansas.

We are requesting 20 volunteers for help conducting walking assessments of the Quincy Elementary school boundaries in conjunction with our Safe Routes to School grant. The date for the assessments is August 7th, we will meet at the Garfield Community Center at 9:00a for a 30min onsite training before spreading out into groups to cover the entire district which will be split into different quadrants. Not sure how long it will take, but volunteers should plan on a couple of hours. Volunteers should dress appropriately: tennis shoes, hats, sunscreen, etc. water and snacks will be provided for volunteers. What is Safe Routes to School? It is an international movement to create safe, convenient, and fun opportunities for children to bike and walk to and from school. The purpose of these walking assessments with Quincy Elementary are to look at the potential barriers that have parents keeping their children from walking to and from school.
