Website to encourage kids to walk to school by giving away one year’s worth of shoes
Money saving website, MyFamilyClub.co.uk is giving away one year’s worth of brand new shoes in a bid to encourage more kids to walk to school.
The move comes as over 40 countries around the world prepare to celebrate International Walk to School month this October.
The website has joined forces with family brand, Start-rite, to give away the prize.
CEO of MyFamilyClub.co.uk, Gemma Johnson, said: “We all know the dangers an unhealthy lifestyle can bring, so it’s absolutely crucial that we instil good habits into our kids now. Making an effort to walk to school can be the perfect way to fit exercise in without spending a fortune on expensive gym memberships. By giving away one year’s worth of brand new shoes, we can encourage kids to get on their feet and get moving in shoes that are durable and well-fitting.”
Melanie Tuckwell, Communications Manager at Start-rite, said “We are sponsoring International Walk to School Month because we are strong advocates of supporting the healthy development and wellbeing of every child. Having children’s feet properly measured and fitted with quality footwear helps keep little feet healthy and active, allowing them to walk in comfort whilst also ensuring their long-term foot development.”
The winning family will receive one year’s worth of brand new kid’s shoes and can choose five shoes from the A/W range.
