MILDURA children and families are encouraged to get active this October by taking part in VicHealth’s Walk to School program.

Mildura Rural City Council is teaming up with Healthy Together Mildura to work with local primary schools to deliver a range of activities encouraging more families to walk, ride or scoot to school this October thanks to a $10,000 grant from VicHealth.

Councillor for community well-being and services Ali Cupper said VicHealth’s Walk to School program was a free, easy and fun way for kids to get active and learn healthy habits for life.

“Last year, 12 local schools participated in this great VicHealth initiative, and we encourage more primary schools to get involved this year to make Walk to School bigger and better,” Cr Cupper said.
