Children less fit. We need #walkable neighborhoods.

Slow-poke generation? Kids less fit than their parents were, study finds | CTV News: "DALLAS -- Today's kids can't keep up with their parents. An analysis of studies on millions of children around the world finds they don't run as fast or as far as their parents did when they were young.
On average, it takes children 90 seconds longer to run a mile than their counterparts did 30 years ago. Heart-related fitness has declined 5 per cent per decade since 1975 for children ages 9 to 17."
