We are just 2 weeks away from International Walk to School Day! For many parents, the car has become the main means of transporting children to and from school. The result has been a gradual decrease in the numbers of children walking and wheeling to and from school on a regular basis.
International Walk to School Day promotes: increasing daily physical activity, improving safety, enhancing the environment, reducing levels of crime, developing community cohesion, promoting social interaction and reducing traffic congestion, pollution and speed near schools.
Join us on Wednesday, October 8th (Rain date: 15th). We are hoping to have groups leaving from 5 locations again this year. If you are available to volunteer at one of the following, or if you want to form a group of your own, please let us know: Stockman Drive, Upton Park, Soccer Field Entrance by Park West, Parricus Mead Subdivision, and West Royalty Community Centre.
Groups usually meet at around 7:45 am and walk to school together. We have volunteers at some of the starting locations but more are always welcome! If you can help or want more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
