Park the Car, It's Not that Far!


Did you know it only takes 15 minutes to walk one kilometer?  ParticipACTION's new campaign is a refreshing reminder to parents and kids alike to "Park the Car, It’s Not that Far" - encouraging us all to increase our physical activity levels by walking, biking, in-line skating, or skateboarding to and from places that are short distances away.

Active and Safe Routes to School in Manitoba is the voice for children and youth on the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies Public Stakeholder Committee for the City of Winnipeg.  Do you have something to contribute?  Please email us at asrts@greenactioncentre.ca, and fill out the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/walkbikewinnipeg.  Your input is greatly appreciated!
