For Schools

When kids develop and follow a walking program early on, they learn fitness basics that can last a lifetime.

Get Your Kids Walking!

No matter what your age, walking is a great activity. It helps you stay fit, lowers stress, boosts mood and strengthens bones.

It's something anyone can do with members of your family or with friends. You don't need a gym or any fancy equipment. Best of all, unlike so many exercise programs, walking is free.

When kids develop and follow a walking program early on, they learn fitness basics that can last a lifetime. That's why Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center developed the Walking Club and School Walking Kit.

We encourage you to use these free materials to teach students about the benefits of walking and to get them excited about making this exercise part of their weekly routine.

Thank you for joining the BIDMC Walking Club!
