So, what are you supposed to do? Participating in IWalk could be as simple as promoting walking and biking through school announcements or newsletters, to hosting a school-wide walk, to organizing a clothing or shoe drive. Need inspiration? See our list of ideas for events and activities.
Thousands of Manitoba school children will join millions of others from over 43 countries to celebrate walking to school this October for International Walk to School Month. Join the celebration!
Sign up your school to receive posters, stickers, and other incentives for IWALK 2017.
