Bring IWALK to your school in OctobeR!          Feet First can help

International Walk to School (IWALK) Month is October 2012.  Every year, thousands of schools around the world get their students walking with IWALK celebrations how about you?  

As of June 15, four Washington State schools have registered events on the IWALK website.  Good going, early registrants!  We are currently ahead of where we were last year, AND have more schools registered than IWALK powerhouse, Oregon can we make it last?

Last year, 64 schools registered IWALK events in Washington State.  Feet First challenges schools across the state to help us double that number by October!  Feet First will help!
