The smallest Trailblazers are the children at Fairhope Elementary School and Fairhope Intermediate School who walk to school every day, rain or shine, starting from a designated meeting location.

Students enjoy outdoor recreation and socialization, learn safe walking skills, and arrive at school ready to focus.

Committed volunteers, parents, teachers and sponsors, as well as support from the City of Fairhope, make the Walking School Bus possible. It is the only daily walk to school program in Alabama.

Organized walks to school benefit the entire community by reducing traffic congestion and air pollution associated with long car lines, and by teaching children lifelong healthy habits.

Want to volunteer, start a walking program at another county school, or be a sponsor? Contact Charlene Lee at 251-402-2795.
