International Walk to School Month

October is International Walk to School Month!

Officially, IWALK to School Week is the first full week of October and IWALK to School Day is the first Wednesday of October but you can choose any day or week in October to celebrate! 

  • October 2 - October 6, 2023  is International Walk to School Week

  • Or choose any day/week in October to celebrate! 

IWALK gives children, parents, teachers, and community leaders an opportunity to get outside and discover their neighbourhoods or schoolgrounds. Getting children and youth outside to be physically active plays a key role in keeping kids healthy and focused– IWALK is a wonderful way to make this happen with your class.
