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 Chelsea tractors off the roads for a five-day spell could make all the difference for the future health of kids around the UK.
Every year for a five-day spell, Living Streets creates a themed challenge for schoolchildren and their significant others to take on while they’re doing the school walk. It’s become incredibly popular, too; in 2017 alone, 400,000 children and their families took part in the challenge.
Walk to School Week 2019 is 20-25 May.
