Ajax students are encouraged to walk to school for Winter Walk Day on February 1. Participating schools will receive a Healthy Kids prize pack that includes winter toques, a certificate of participation, and online recognition. Registration is now available online at ajax.ca/winterwalk.
The goal of Winter Walk Day is to encourage schools and students to walk to school throughout the winter months. Walking to school in the winter is fun with a group of friends. Students should remember to dress warmly and stay hydrated with water.
- Schools that track how many students walked to school will receive a certificate of participation.
- Winter Walk Day is in partnership with Get Ajax Moving and the Ajax Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
- Safety reminder that crossing guards help children get to school. Drivers, please slow down when approaching a crossing zone and be aware of no stopping and no parking signs.
