Please join us in celebrating:
There are many ways to participate
Register your event at http://www.walkbiketoschool.org/go.
Plan your route to walk to school. Find the safest route and ask others to go with you. Walk or bike from home, walk or bike from a designated place. Check out the Map a Route tool at WalkBiketoSchool.org
Walk in a group, there is safety in numbers. See if your school is registered or is planning an event.

This was one of the main conclusions of a comprehensive Danish project – The ‘Mass Experiment 2012’ – which set out to examine the link between diet, exercise and the power of concentration.
