As Safe Routes to School Coordinator for Mecklenburg County Health. Department, Dick has recently added “Let’s Ride to SafetyTown” to his list of programs.“Safety Town” is made possible by an ongoing grant from the Carolinas Healthcare System Foundation, and it has been operating in CMS for 23 years. This is a program for kindergarten students where they ride “scoot” bikes (no pedals, no training wheels!) to learn how to balance on 2 wheels. It commenced last November and continues through the school year, engaging 65 elementary schools. Dick is also a member of the CABA Advisory Board, the Advisory Board to the Char-Meck. Dept. of Parks and Recreation, the Board of the North Carolina Active Transportation Alliance and other civic ventures. Thank you Dick for your tireless efforts and passion for the cause !
