Now in its 15th year, National Walk to Work Day is an annual event which helps all Australians build regular walking into their daily routines.

Put your Feet First and take part in National Walk to Work Day on Friday 8 November 2013!

It's easy:

  • If you can't walk all the way, use public transport and get off the bus, train, tram or ferry a few stops earlier and walk the rest of the way to work.
  • If you need to drive, try to leave the car at least a kilometre from your destination and walk the rest of the way.
  • Take a half-hour walk at lunchtime.
  • Where possible use the stairs rather than escalators or lifts.
  • If you sit a lot at work, remember get up and walk around at least once every hour. Have a piece of fruit or a drink of water, or get up to talk to a colleague instead of sending an email.

Those who would like to participate are asked to register and show their support for this great initiative, there is also opportunity to raise funds for charity if desired.

Get involved - not only will you be promoting regular walking as a healthy activity, you will help to reduce the reliance on the private motor vehicle, promote and improve the use of public transport and also improve air quality by reducing unnecessary vehicle emissions.
