Today I met with Sonya Beauclair from The City of Lacombe and Kathleen from Red Sports in Lacombe to hear about ‘Walk To School Week’ coming up from Oct 2-6th.
The City and this amazing local business are teaming up for International Walk to School Month (IWALK). IWALK is “an annual mass celebration of active transportation taking place around the world every October. Hundreds of schools participate in IWALK each year, with many holding their events on IWALK Day, the first Wednesday of October.”
Red Sports is offering 10% off regular priced shoes if you mention Walk to School Week when you are shopping at the store, and they are donating 10% of the weeks shoe sales to Lacombe FCSS.
The City of Lacombe will be out in the community the morning of Oct 4th looking for kids walking to school and reward them for their participation with prizes and treats from The City!
