We wanted to share the following from our friends at The Alliance for a Healthier Generation...
Remember the thrill of riding a bike for the first time or walking to school that first day? You were on your own, independent to go out into the world, joined by friends and able to enjoy an adventure by walking or biking to school. What better way to bring this experience back to your children and other families, than to plan a Walking and Biking to School event this October.
Join the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership as they provide information on the importance of walking and biking to school, including "how to" plan an event, resources to get you started and tips to keep students biking and walking all year long.
Join us on September 17, 2013 at 3:00 ET for a live discussion including information about:
- Accessing Walking and Biking to School Planning and Outreach Materials
- How Walking and Biking to School can meet Healthy Schools Program and Let's Move! Active Schools Framework Criteria
- Resources provided by the new Fire Up Your Feet Program, a collaboration between Kaiser Permanente, National Parent Teacher Association, and Safe Routes to School National Partnership
