Walk and Wheel to School helps the JQ school and JQ PAC encourage students, parents, staff, and community members to celebrate the many benefits of walking and wheeling to school – with help from DASH BC, and some local businesses who donate prizes.

Public transit is free during this week.

Why:

  • to encourage fitness
  • to respect those who use other forms of transportation than car
  • to increase the value of walking, scootering, or cycling

  • Everyday before school – Arrival snacks and prizes!
    PRIZES raffled at 8:50 am
