The Burgoynes Walk to School

To celebrate VicHealth’s Walk to School initiative, Hawthorn’s Shaun Burgoyne joined his four children (Ky, Leni, Nixie and Percy) on their walk home from school.

The four-time premiership player chatted with his children about his own journey to and from school growing up in South Australia and who their favourite AFL and AFLW players are. Hint: It’s not their Dad!

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.
