View last year’s Sleep Walks:
Julie, I serve as the director of the Arlington chapter of Start School Later, a national nonprofit organization of sleep specialists, researchers, parents, teachers and students who are pushing to insure healthy school hours for adolescents. As a result of start times in the 7 o’clock hour, 79 % of teens are sleep deprived. Research has shown these kids fall into a deep sleep at the rate of someone with narcolepsy.
I was wondering what common ground our organizations could work and support each other?
Wow that is absolutely a great idea!! That’s also very interesting information Debbie! I would love to hear what happens with this!
I was wondering what we need to do to do something like this here in Cedar City, UT. It’s still a bit cold here but when it warms up a bit. I would love to get something like this going.
I told 3 of my friends about these, and 2 were already going but the third just heard about it and is now going 🙂 She is going to the Hawaii One!
Hi Julie I am interested in starting a sleep walk in my city…would you be able to give me any information on how to get this started
