BikeBrampton encourages year-round walking and biking to school. This special day on February 3rd has been set up across the country by Green Communities Canada to showcase the wonders of getting outside in fresh air and actively travelling to school. Children enjoy well-documented health and academic benefits of arriving at school exercised and ready to learn.
IT’S WINTER! DON’T HIBERNATE — WALK TO SCHOOL AND CELEBRATE
“Everyone in our school tries to walk for a healthy body and safer streets. I like walking to school with my friends because we could talk. Walking is way better than riding in a car because walking is more fun than getting a ride.” – Student at Morton Way Public School, Brampton, ON
Schools can share their Winter Walk Day experiences on Twitter using hashtag #walktoschool.
