Written by Frances Bain

Walk to Work Week 2011 starts on the 9th May just as the Step Count Challenge draws to a close. What better way to keep up the great work and stay active, sign your team up at http://www.mylivingstreets.org.uk/ and take part.

This May is National Walking Month when Living Streets will be encouraging the nation to leave their carswalk_to_work_week_2011 at home and take to the streets. Walk to Work Week, 9-13 May, is the perfect opportunity for people to fit more walking into their daily working lives.

To get your workplace registered, assign an administrator to sign up on My Living Streets and then create a workplace group. Once created, colleagues can be invited to create their own personal profiles and join this group. During the Week (9-13 May), they can log the number of miles, steps or minutes that they have walked each day and under each challenge. Their contributions will be automatically added to the workplace total so you can see during and after the Week how well everyone did.

It’s not just about walking to work: we know that many of you travel long distances on your daily commutes so during the Week you can challenge colleagues to see if they can:

  • Walk to work (part or all the way)
  • Walk from work (part or all the way)
  • Walk to a meeting (part or all the way)
  • Walk for a meeting
  • Walk at lunchtime

In order to get the most out of national Walk to Work Week Living Streets are providing a number of supporting resources to help you plan and promote the Week to your colleagues. A number of resources are free to download and some additional resources are available for purchase.
