iwalk-iwheel club is a fun activity for schools and communities who are working to encourage more families to use active travel to school more often. The iwalk-iwheel theme complements initiatives like walk-wheel on Wednesdays or walk-wheel once a week, walking school buses, and can be incorporated into seasonal events like October’s International Walk to School, February’s Winter Walk Day, and Spring into Spring.

The iwalk-iwheel club is not just for those families who live close enough to the school to walk or cycle. All students can participate, even those that travel on school buses:
students who come to school on a school bus can participate in related in-school activities such as Kilometre Club, Walking Club or community walks
students who take transit already have to walk part way, so they qualify
students who have to be driven can encourage their parents to park safely and 'walk a block' (schools are encouraged to set up 'walk-a-block' zones around their school; students who are unable to walk all the way to school can still qualify for a stamp on their club card if they have walked at least from the start of the 'walk-a-block' zone. Walk-a-block zones are typically a minimum of two full blocks from the school. Local municipalities can work with schools to identify suitable areas.)
The iwalk-iwheel club is made possible thanks to a donation from the Canadian Automobile Association’s South Central Ontario region.
