Celebrate on the final day you take part in Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel.
Wear non-uniform, raise money and include everyone.
Active journeys—that’s walking, using a wheelchair, scooting and cycling—are amazing. They are good for the environment and good for your health. We think that deserves celebrating.
We want to celebrate how amazing your pupils have been taking part in Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel and learning about the benefits of active travel.
Amazing Me Day is a great way to involve all pupils in Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel. We suggest you hold it on the last day of the event. If you can’t take part on this day, you can choose another day during the challenge.
It is also the perfect day to make sure all your journeys are logged to Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel website.
You can also use the day to fundraise for Sustrans, please email email@example.com for more information.
Over the years, thousands of children across the UK have dressed up during Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel. Everyone has a great time and at the same time raise funds for Sustrans.
How it works
1. Tell parents
2. Encourage the kids to wear something of their choice
- Encourage everyone at your school to wear non-uniform for the day.
- We want them to wear something of their own choice that they feel comfortable in.
- It could be wearing their favourite pair comfy jeans, their favourite colour something that reminds them of their favourite sports team.
- They are amazing and anything they choose goes.
3. Additional activities
