Walk to School Day

October 7th is National Walk to School Day! We’re so excited to announce that all 9 elementary schools in Conway will be participating in this event. Volunteers will be from BPAB, CAB, and Pam McDowell Properties.

Parents and kids are encouraged to ditch the car and walk to and from school on this day. Volunteers will be at the school that morning to hand out goodies to the kids as they arrive on foot!

There are many benefits to walking to school:

  • Weight and blood pressure control
  • Bone, muscle, and joint health and maintenance
  • Reduction in the risk of diabetes
  • Improved psychological welfare
  • Better academic performance
  • Brings a sense of joy and independence
  • IT’S FUN!!!

Safety is always 1st priority. To find out safe ways to walk to school please visit http://walkbiketoschool.org/keep-going/pedestrian-safety

Please reach out to Emilywalter@conwaycorp.net for any questions about this event. We look forward to seeing the children that morning!
