Sunday, October 3, is TAFISA (The Association for International Sport for All) World Walking Day, a day developed to build bridges and connections between people around the world. As a partner with TAFISA and a proponent of the Sport for All movement, the WMF encourages our members to participate in this day.
Launched in 1991, TAFISA World Walking Day has provided a simple and fun way to be physically active and celebrate Sport for All against the global crisis of physical inactivity. Over three decades, dozens of millions of people hailing from over a hundred and sixty countries have made a habit of walking together on the first Sunday of October, turning it into “World Walking Day”.
How do you participate? Here's the simple steps:
1) Make a video of yourself, or other participants, while being active out on the minigolf course and passing the baton from the right to the left hand side, facing the camera.
2) In the same video, while you are passing the baton, stop your activity for a second and tell us who/what you are passing the baton for - whether in the name of a loved one, for your favourite cause, or to support something important to you.
Let's go out and pass the minigolf baton around the globe!
