The event benefits Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE) and Walk n' Rollers.
SAFE is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers alike by working to reduce traffic caused fatalities to Zero. SAFE addresses this problem in a holistic fashion through direct education, broad awareness campaigns, partnerships, community outreach, policy and legislation, support for those impacted and other proven strategies.
Walk n' Rollers (a project of LACBC) encourages children to walk and bike to school more often and more safely.
