Video Release! "Walk to School Manitoba" 


 

Introducing our first ever video for the Active and Safe Routes to School program in Manitoba! We hope you will help us increase awareness for active transportation in youth by sharing this video with your colleagues. 

Thank you to Assiniboine Credit Union for supporting the Green Action Centre video series, and to our filmmakers Chris Paetkau and Trevor Gill for bringing our work to life. A big thank you to our movie stars from Woodlawn Elementary School in Steinbach, Manitoba, the original artwork was created by them as well.

You can always help us to work with more schools by making a donation to our program.
