Walking Buddies

If you live in the OSTA Walk Zone<http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/George-Vanier-GR-4-6-1.6-KM-Walk-Zone-Map.pdf>, you are invited to connect with other Georges Vanier families living near you to find "Walking Buddies."

If your child is younger, you can team up with another family to take turns walking the kids to/from school at least some of the time. It is flexible, fun and healthy.  Keep it small with 2 or 3 families. Decide how to connect (text, Messenger, etc.) and where to meet. There are lots of pathways that are cleared in the winter and friendly crossing guards in the neighbourhood. 

To find the best routes, check out the OSTA Walk Zone<http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/George-Vanier-GR-4-6-1.6-KM-Walk-Zone-Map.pdf> map.  How to find a Walking Buddy?
