Heppell walks Harry to school

Young Essendon fan Harry knows everything there is to know about Dyson Heppell — he spends his spare time watching the Bombers captain’s highlights on YouTube.

So, you can imagine Harry’s joy when Heppell joined him on his morning walk to school.

Every October, VicHealth’s Walk to School initiative encourages Victorian primary school kids to walk, ride or scoot to and from school as a way to help students learn healthy habits and achieve the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day.

Victorian primary schools who register and submit their Walk to School results are eligible to win a visit from an AFL or AFLW player, while individuals can win a signed AFL jumper if they share a image of their decorated shoes, bike or scooter on social media with the hashtag #WalkToSchool and tag @WalkToSchool.
