How To Organize Your Event

Registration Form goes here.

  1. Notify everyone – parents, children, teachers and neighbours – of the event in advance. (Use posters, newsletters, school announcements, school assembly).
  2. Invite special guests to join you (Mayor, City Councilors, School Trustee, MLA, and Police)
  3. Clearly outline your plans. Event is for everyone to walk or wheel all or part of the way to school! If cycling, wear your bike helmet, follow traffic safety rules, and be sure to bring a lock for your bike at school.
  4. Create a festive atmosphere and celebrate participation. Give a token reward (a hand stamp or sticker) to each participant and/or a chance to win a draw prize. Have local cheerleaders, mascots or special guests greet students upon arrival.
  5. Create an award for the class with most participants that could be presented at a school assembly. School Council may wish to sponsor award.
  6. Take photos of your event at your school and add them to the school’s Web site or newsletter. Invite local media to attend
