THE CHALLENGE: Walk your kids to school this October to celebrate International Walk to School Day (Oct. 6)
WHY JOIN US? In communities we support, rugged terrain, scorching heat and the threat of violence, challenge a child’s long walk to school — ending learning opportunities for many.
WALK AND TALK: On your walk, talk to your kid(s) about how lucky Canadians are to have safe paths to education, schools that offer nutritious meals, a safe place to learn and the foundation for healthy relationships. (More tips here)
SPREAD THE MESSAGE: Share your journey to school using #TheLongWalk, #WalkToSchoolDay and #WalkAndTalk. Don’t forget to tag us on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter.
GIVE SUPPORT: Walk alongside another child, and change a life through sponsorship. (Imagine what your kids will learn!)
