Journey outside in 2019-2020

It’s that busy Back to School time already, and time to start planning your encouragement events to get more kids walking and wheeling to school. 
The dates of the four seasonal events are as follows:

Visit our walk and wheel event webpage and click on an event for a wealth of resources to help with planning: from activity and incentive ideas, to downloadable posters and sticker designs.

Each event requires registration through our website. When you register school events in your community, they will be entered into draws for prizes, and receive a Certificate of Recognition. You are also helping to demonstrate how the active school travel movement continues to grow across the province. Last year, 233,204 students participated from 1,321 schools in Ontario.
