Books will be distributed at the Forever Family 5K Run and Walk sponsored by the FamiliesFirst Network of Lakeview (FFN) in honor of National Adoption month.
|PENSACOLA, Fla., November 1 — Any child who rides a school bus can benefit from more safety education concerning the big yellow bus. In an effort to spread this message of safety, School Training Solutions, a leading provider in driver training for school bus drivers, is donating “Carmen Loves the Bus” books to every participant in the upcoming Footprints to a Forever Family 5K Run and Walk. These books are geared toward young children who are beginning to experience school bus transportation.
|The “Carmen Loves the Bus” book was created by the American School Bus Council as a way to educate young children about school bus safety. “We received permission from American School Bus Council to reprint these wonderful books, and I look for new ways to get them into the hands of children and parents,” says Patrick Willi.|
The Footprints to a Forever Family 5K Run and Walk event is an ideal match for handing out the books because of its focus on children and families.
November is National Adoption month and a time to celebrate the families created through adoption. The Footprints to a Forever Family 5K Run and Walk proceeds raised will go to share the message of the need for more adoptive families to help waiting children find a forever home. The 5K run and walk takes place Saturday, November 2, 2013 at 8:00 a.m.
