About Winter Walk Day 2020
Winter is a great time to walk and be outside! Schools and youth groups are invited to walk at school or around the neighbourhood, walk to school or go for a hike on Winter Walk Day. Register by clicking here.
Don't let cold, wind, snow or rain keep folks from heading out for a walk. If they dress properly and practice winter safety, they're ready to go! Walking is fun when you walk together. It's good for our bodies because of the extra physical activity. It's good for the Earth if you walk as transportation because it cuts down on the number of polluting cars on our streets.
