Campbell Rallies Kids For Pedestrian Safety


Jason Campbell visited Stuart-Hobson Middle School in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, Oct. 7 to take part in a pep rally for International Walk to School Day.

Campbell also coached a pedestrian safety clinic and acted as a crossing guard for students, in an effort to demonstrate safe pedestrian crossing and help keep students safe.

The event was part of the 5th annual FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Week program, which encourages NFL fans to vote for outstanding Air and Ground players throughout the season to benefit pedestrian safety programs nationwide.

As part of the program, FedEx teamed with D.C.-based Safe Kids USA--a national non-profit organization that works to prevent accidental injury among children--to deliver safer kids by making weekly donations in the winning players' names to local Safe Kids coalitions across the country.

FedEx is donating funds to the Washington D.C. coalition to improve pedestrian safety in the local community, especially among the Capitol Hill Cluster Schools.
