Walking Events

International Walk to School Month (October)
"International
Walk to School Month gives children,
parents, school teachers and
community leaders an opportunity
to be part of a global event
as they celebrate the many benefits
of walking. In 2007, millions of walkers from
around the world walked to school together
for various reasons - all hoping
to create communities that are safe places
to walk."

Can't walk to school? Hold a Winter Walk Day during school. Walk to the local skating rink for a skate or hold a Winter carnival in the school yard at lunch.
