Looking to stay moving this fall? Give walking to school (or other places) a try!
You may already know that we’re big fans of kids and families using active forms of transportation. Choosing to walk to school or bike to your next appointment is one way to add a few minutes of physical activity for your child. After all, kids need a total of 60-90 minutes of physical activity every day.
It’s important to ensure that your kids are staying safe while exploring, whether it be on foot, bike, scooter, or another form of active transportation. That’s why we’ve teamed up with our friends from CAA Saskatchewan to shine the spotlight on pedestrian safety. They’ve put together some great information for pedestrians as well as drivers and cyclists to help keep everyone safe. Find CAA's tips here.
If you’re a community leader or decision maker, consider advocating for active and safe routes to school or designated bike lanes. There are lots of ways you can make a difference!
When it comes to getting active…and staying safe, we all have a role to play. You got this…and, as always, we’re here to help!
