National Ride2School Day 2012
National Ride2School Day takes part in Bonner on the 23rd March 2011. This is one of the Country’s biggest and most exciting events to help promote physical activity and the benefits of an active life.
The event last year involved 140,000 children from 1050 Australian schools, many of who were riding to school for the first time. The day celebrates an active journey to school but is underpinned by the serious purpose of enabling children to be routinely more active as part of an effective response to the diseases that threaten our inactive children including obesity and diabetes.
Ride2School Day is about encouraging kids to choose an active way of getting to school, getting them outdoors and exercising every day, with the result that they will be more alert and ready to learn and leading to a nation of healthier, more independent children.
