Story

The 2020 Virtual 5K for Safe Texas Streets will take place Saturday, November 7 to Saturday, November 14, beginning on the 20th anniversary of the last day that no one died on Texas streets and roads, November 7, 2000, and ending the day before the annual World Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Traffic Violence.

The Virtual 5K will support the growth of the Texas Vision Zero movement by helping Farm&City hire the first full-time Director of Vision Zero Texas.

During the week of November 7-14, each participant will go on an optional walk or roll five kilometers on their own or in small, COVID-safe groups during that week. On your walk, take note of where transportation infrastructure and urban design make you feel safe or unsafe,  post on social media with the hashtag #WalkForSafeTexasStreets, and add those notes to a survey you will complete at the end of your experience.

Farm&City staff and Central Texas Families for Safe Streets volunteers will be in touch throughout the process to give you more information about the movement to end traffic deaths, actions you can take to support the cause, and support for your efforts.
