I already walk or bike

How do you get to school?



Awesome! You have already taken up the challenge of staying healthy and reducing your carbon footprint by walking or cycling to school.

We need your help to get other students to try walking and cycling to school. Gather your friends and walk and roll together.

Some schools are already doing great projects such as travel planning, drop and go zones, and park and walk programs. Learn more about what others are doing and set up something at your own school.

Help motivate other students to take on Mayor Nenshi's walk challenge by:

  • Sharing a picture of you walking or rolling to school on Facebook or Twitter (don't forget to use the #yycwalk hashtag)
  • Inviting a friend to try walking and cycling with you. Do they normally get a ride? Arrange for them to be dropped off at your home and walk or bike together.
  • Getting your friends and neighbours involved in the Challenge:
    • Make it fun! Theme your walk and bike days by encouraging kids and parents to wear fun hats or decorate their sneakers or backpacks.
