Girl Scouts of Hawaii and the Hawaii Dept. of Transportation have teamed up to teach our girls the importance of pedestrian safety.

The number 1 reason for pedestrian accidents and fatalities in Hawaii is inattentive behavior on the part of pedestrians and drivers. With social media activities on mobile devices on the rise, children, teens and young adults are more distracted while walking. We can all benefit from learning how to be good pedestrians and eliminate distractions while crossing the street.

Join us on Sat. Aug. 11 at Kona Commons Shopping Center parking lot. The Girl Scout event begins at 9:00 followed by a service project so girls will earn the Walk Wise patch on the spot. The community event runs until noon so families are welcome to stay and enjoy the festivities.

Girls will learn the 7 Steps to Safety and earn the Walk Wise Patch by participating in an on-the-spot community service project. Girls will also receive a safety light and reflective bracelet. Parents may either drop their child off or stay for the presentation.

There is no cost for this program but please register your girl online so we can have an accurate headcount. Girls should wear closed shoes and their Girl Scout uniform if at all possible.

A Health History form for Council Programs is required for each girl. Email the completed form to Marci no later than Aug. 9 (preferred) or bring the completed form with you to the event.
