Be Healthy School Day
Walking for the health of it!
Five years ago, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama developed Alabama Walk@School Day to complement National Walk@Lunch Day® and encourage school-aged children to make walking a healthy habit for life. Alabama Walk@School Day mirrored the National Walk@Lunch Day program, except with a clear focus on children. And the program has been a great success!
In our first four years, over 190,000 children participated in over 150 schools. Now, we’re looking to grow, and we need your help!
We are now expanding the program into Be Healthy School Day to encompass multiple facets of wellness: physical, nutritional, mental and emotional. Let’s make April a springboard to a lifestyle of wellness for Alabama’s students!
