International Walk to School Month - 2014, Montreal schools

To celebrate International Walk to School Month in October, Vélo Québec has an activity to suggest to all Montreal daycare services and their students. Get them to imagine their active route to school and have them illustrate it on a postcard addressed to their parents.

Vélo Québec will collect all the completed postcards in early November. Participants’ names will be put into a draw for some great prizes, including Kryptonite bike locks, bicycle lights and bells, and neck warmers. All prizes will be mailed to the winners via their daycare.


1) Contact us to order blank postcards* and a return envelope, at or 514-521-8356, ext. 316. Please indicate how many children are enrolled in your daycare program.

2) Talk to your students about how healthy and fun walking and cycling are.

3) Get them to illustrate an active route to school on the back of their postcard.

4) Ask them to show their completed postcard to their parents to make them aware of the initiative and provide their contact information and signature for the draw.

5) Collect the signed postcards and send them back to us by November 7, 2014.

*First come, first served. Supplies are limited.

The International Walk to School Month is a campaign offered through Vélo Québec's On the Move in the Community program.
