Changing behaviors requires creative solutions that are safe and fun. A county-wide Walk or Bike to School program can be both. Through our Walk or Bike to School program, our volunteers offer education and skills programs and teach children and parents about physical activity such as walking and bicycling - which are essential to defeating this obesity epidemic.
We strongly encourage everyone to plan to include children and adults of all abilities.
Walking one mile to and from school each day is two-thirds of the recommended sixty minutes of physical activity a day. Plus, children who walk to school have higher levels of physical activity throughout the day. With your support, WalkBikeBerks can help parents and children improve their weight management efforts and continue to make elected officials aware of the dangerous physical, mental and emotional consequences associated with childhood obesity.
