Do you know that October is the "International Walk to School Month"?

International Walk to School Day/Month (IWALK) is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October.

IWALK is a chance to celebrate our environment by keeping our air clean, to share walking safety skills with children, to bring safety to our neighbourhoods and reduce crime, to address traffic congestion, pollution and speed around our schools, and to spend valuable time with one another. All great reasons to get your school and community involved!

Since October is not over yet, consider joining the movement and try to walk or bike with your kids at least twice before the month is over.
