This Friday, 2nd October we are being asked to leave our car at home and walk to work.
Become a Walking Class Hero by walking to (or from) work, or using public transport and getting off a few stops earlier and walking the rest of the way. The aims of Walk to Work Day are:
– The promotion of regular walking as a healthy activity (better physical, mental and social health)
– Reduction of car dependency
– Promotion and improving the use of public transport
– Reducing global warming
Bosses are being asked to support their employees – and walk as well. Some companies are holding Healthy Breakfast for their staff once they get to work. Councils are being asked to participate by providing special arrangements for car parks that link to public transport and repair footpaths, making it easier to walk.
For better health and cleaner air – unblock some arteries and walk on Friday
