It may seem a little early to talk about the International Walk to School Day scheduled for October 7, 2009. Â But as they say, it is never to early to start planning.
This is a good opportunity to make it a fun day for the kids/families and really raise awareness about the importance of being active. If this is the first time for your local school to participate, the first step is to register your school.
By registering your school, (teachers, parents and even kids can pass this information along to the principal) you will get downloadable materials to make it a fun event for the kids. Materials include stickers, puzzles and certificates.
By officially participating, your school will have a chance to win prizes and will receive a weekly newsletter that provides tips on for holding this event.For event ideas to help your team begin planning, click here.
This is an international event, other countries, please visit the international Walk to School website for more information!
