International Walk to School Day
In October every year, millions of children from around the world take part in the walk to school challenge.
Not only does it encourage health and fitness, it also improves concentration, social skills and can help children to feel calmer, happier and focused in school. It has the added benefit of heightening awareness of traffic and road safety too.
It's no surprise then that this annual event is enjoyed by over 40 countries across the globe.
With walking being one of the cheapest, easiest and most effective forms of exercise, ditch that car and get laced up for International Walk to School Day.
How will you be getting to school today?
