This Monday, Walk to School!

This Monday, Walk to School!

Get your shoes laced and put your smiles on! Walk to school with your family this Monday to get moving and stay moving throughout the week.

This Wednesday, October 10, is International Walk to School Day. Within 40 participating countries, communities around the world will celebrate the joy of walking to school in an effort to introduce healthier habits to students, parents, and teachers.

On Your Marks, Get Set, GO!

It’s no secret, kids love to move and play. Start the week moving together with a fun and easy walk to school.

Walking is for all fitness levels and is one of the simplest exercises anyone can do, with potential benefits like strengthening muscles and boosting the immune system ­– benefits you’ll want to keep receiving throughout an active and busy school year.

Teaching your kids about fitness early on pays off. Researchers found when students are physically active it means better brain power in the classroom. It’s a win-win!

Walk to school on Monday, then join the thousands of students and parents who will make their way to school this Wednesday for International Walk to School Day. Have a great school year!  Please share your pictures of the day with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
