Today is Walking Wednesday – let’s get walking!
For the month of October, every Wednesday has been designated as Walking Wednesday in the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board.
The purpose of Walking Wednesdays is to create a supportive environment for students to try active transportation for the first time by getting more people walking together on the same day. While many families welcome the idea – they know walking to school is a healthy habit – they haven’t yet moved to action.
So, on Walking Wednesdays, we encourage all families who live within the Walk Zone to try active transportation since trying something once is the first step toward sustained action.
Resources for active transportation, including common walking routes, crossing guard locations, and how long your walk will take can be found on your school page at https://www.dailyschoolroute.org
