Walk to School Week - 20-24 May

Walk to School Week

Get ready to lace up for 'Walk to School Week' which takes place next week, from 20-24 May.

It's no surprise that the benefits of walking to school are being pushed harder than ever by 'Living Streets', the UK charity that sells the benefits of two feet over four wheels.

Childhood obesity is now a bigger issue than ever in the UK, so the chance to get a few more vehicles off the roads for 'Walk to School Week' can only be to the good.

Make a difference — walk to school between 20-24 May.
