Organisations from all walks of industry and business are being called upon to register for National Walk to Work Day, an annual event being held on Friday, 2 October 2009 that promotes better health and cleaner air.
And individual staff members are being invited to register as a Walking Class Hero to go in the draw to win a Walking Holiday in New Zealand.
Now in its 7th year as a national initiative, Walk to Work Day encourages Australians to walk all or part of the way to work to improve health and contribute to a cleaner environment.
If you can't walk to work, include a walk at lunch or walk to your first appointment instead of getting a taxi.
Organisations who register will receive ideas on how to promote walking to staff, posters and flyers.
Individuals can also pledge their willingness to walk by registering as a Walking Class Hero at www.walk.com.au. By registering, individual Walking Class Heroes can go in the draw to win a walking holiday for two people to New Zealand.
Events will be held in each state and territory, with many Australian businesses celebrating the day by holding a Walk to Work Day Healthy Breakfast. For menus and ideas visit www.walk.com.au
