CHARMECK GETS SR2S COORDINATOR

Dick Winters, CABA member

SR2S stands for the national Safe Routes to School program. Funded through Federal legislation, the goal is to get kids walking or riding to school instead of riding gas-hogging buses or Mom’s SUV. These programs often have a safety and education component to teach kids the fundamentals of bike riding, and they are administered in many cases by bike advocacy organizations like CABA.

Dick Winters, (richard.winters@carolinashealthcare.org) has recently assumed this newly created role with County Health offices and will approach his role primarily from a health perspective (i.e. to curb obesity etc.). He will also look out for bicycle interests also from a health support perspective.
