October 2018*

Get your students moving! Every October, thousands of Manitoba school children will join millions of others from over 43 countries to celebrate International Walk to School Month (IWALK). Sign up to participate in IWALK 2018 to help promote healthy living, start important conversations about the environment, and win great prizes.

Participating can be as simple as promoting walking and biking through school announcements or newsletters, hosting a school-wide walk, or organizing a clothing or shoe drive. We have the resources you need to make it happen.

*We encourage schools to participate in the way that they see fit, and schools are free to put on a Walk to School Week or even Walk to School Day.Save
