What’s more, the winning entrant’s school will also benefit from their artistic talents and receive £300 to put towards educational resources and a term of classroom materials to get children walking.

In addition five runner’s up will be given a pair of Start-rite shoes of their choice from our current range, with their school also being awarded £100 and a week of classroom materials to get children walking.

The competition run by Start-rite and Living Streets celebrates the WoW partnership, which supports schools and local authorities to remove barriers to walking. WoW has been running since 2005 and today, helps over 300,000 children get walking across the UK.

Less than half of children now walk to school compared to 83% a generation ago. Through WoW children’s walks to school are recorded and the scheme rewards children who walk to school at least once a week with a collectable badge at the end of each month.
