KC Healthy Kids, BikeWalkKC and Mid-America Regional Council are working together to remind you and your school that International Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 2. It will be here before you know it! We encourage your elementary school, as well as others in the Kansas City region, to participate in this dynamic global event.
Fourty-six schools in the Kansas City region participated in 2018. Help us make this the biggest year yet! If your school plans to participate, be sure register your event online at walktoschoolkc.com.
This annual event helps families, kids and communities highlight the benefits of walking to school and connecting to the environment. Some choose to walk to spend time talking to family and friends, and some just love using their leg power to reap the benefits of increased physical activity.
And if you haven’t already heard, Walk to School Day could help you win $2,500 in our Champions for Health photo contest.
