A Successful Event!

Fifty people gathered at the Central Cinema to join Feet First for the viewings of the Yodios on Saturday! A short walk in the area was led by John Stewart, Feet First's President. He highlighted some of the main issues surrounding crosswalk actions, Safe Routes to School and pedestrian crashes!

Mulled wine and spiced cider warmed us up while Lisa spoke about Feet First and the aim of the Central District Youth project. Then the YODIOS were finally unveiled! The three submissions were all brilliant and looked at different areas and issues. Digital cameras will be given to each submitter! You can view the Yodios yourself here:

Feet First also unveiled their new Safe Routes to School Documentary that will now be used to encourage other schools to get involved with the project as well as to raise awareness of the work they do!

The raffle was a brilliant success raising $370!!! And we thank you all for your kind donations and support! Overall the event was excellent for Feet First in terms of reaching out to new communities as well raising important funds for future work.

AND don't forget the final part of the project takes place on Friday 11th December! The last walking audit will start at Washington Middle School at 2.45. Contact for more information about that.

Thanks again! Keep on walking!
