Cricket Victoria will be using its current schools programs to spread the Walk to School message and encourage all Victorian Primary Schools to register in a bid to help all students get the 60 minutes of activity they need every day.
Throughout October, Melbourne Stars personalities will be on hand to help kids walk, ride or scoot to and from school.
The Melbourne Stars will be offering an array of prizes to encourage school participation in Walk to School, including school excursions to the Stars’ pre-season Practice Match at the MCG, family Stars memberships, Big Bash League tickets and cricket kits.
Batsman David Hussey said the club was supporting Walk to School because it was important to establish healthy habits at a young age.
“Physical activity should be considered an essential part of a healthy lifestyle for all children and Walk to School is a simple way to build daily activity into your child’s day. I’m encouraging families to sign up for Walk to School in October and enjoy some quality time with your kids.” Read more here.
