Let's Get Australia Walking Again

START WALKING NOW AND RAISE FUNDS FOR YOUR FAVOURITE CHARITY

Please register to participate in the Walk to Work program after which you can also register to raise funds for your favourite charity (Fundraising is completely optional):

 

People who walk before or during work are generally healthier, more productive and less likely to be sick or absent. It's in the best interests of all organisations to support and regularly participate in the Walk to Work program.

Now in its 16th year, National Walk to Work Day is an annual event which promotes the Walk to Work program and helps employers and employees to build regular walking into their daily routines.

So we are asking all workers to put their feet first and take part in National Walk to Work Day on Friday 7 November 2014.

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 to 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.

Management can also Host a Healthy Breakfast to promote the event and show support for those employees who take part.
