International Walk to School Month

International Walk to School Month (IWALK) is an annual event taking place every October. The purpose of the event is to encourage parents and kids to use active transportation (including walking and cycling) to commute. Active transportation has many benefits, including increased daily physical activity, improvements in safety near schools by reducing traffic congestion and promoting social interaction.
