AFLW player kicks off Walk To School with “Mo” fun than ever!
To help kick-start Walk to School 2018, AFLW star Moana Hope visited Galilee Regional Catholic Primary School to help the students decorate their shoes and learn the benefits of getting more active.
The lucky students showed off their artistic skills and decorated their shoes with glitter, pipe cleaners and paint.
Mo helped the kids to decorate their shoes and chose her top five favourite shoe designs which won a signed Australian Rules Football thanks to Walk to School’s Community Partners, AFL Players Association!
Her favourite designs included a student’s beautiful bunny shoes and another’s colourful glitter shoes.
The North Melbourne player said she loved seeing the kids get creative and shared the reasons why she loves getting active.
“Kids love being able to get creative and it was awesome to be able to combine that with teaching them the benefits of getting active and building healthy habits when they are younger,” said Mo.
As part of this year’s Walk to School program, kids all over Victoria are encouraged to get creative by decorating their shoes, bikes or scooters. Getting involved in shoe, bike and scooter decorating combines creativity with physical activity to show that getting active is fun.
Parents and carers who share a picture of their kids’ outstanding designs on the Walk to School Facebook page will have a chance to win a signed AFL or AFLW jersey from their favourite team.
There will be four weekly competitions and entries will need to be uploaded during the Walk to School program and tag #walktoschool and tag @WalkToSchool on our Facebook page.
VicHealth is excited to be partnered with the AFL Players Association to bring these fun activities to schools throughout Victoria for this year’s Walk to School program.
