In 2009, Brake was delighted to announce that we smashed the Guinness world record for the largest simulatneous walking bus in multiple locations. The record is now a massive 119,697 participants from 403 schools. Huge thanks to everyone who took part!
The aim of Brake’s Walking Bus the project is twofold, to encourage schools to educate children about road safety and to raise funds for Brake to ensure we can continue our work with families who have been bereaved in road crashes.
In 2009, for the first time ever, Brake has put in place a reward scheme to recognises schools who go above and beyond with their fundraising efforts and support the charity by donating substantial amounts.
