Shanaze Reade has been appointed as the first-ever Cycling and Walking Ambassador for the West Midlands (22 March 2019).
It comes after Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking called on Andy Street, West Midlands Mayor to appoint a senior walking and cycling champion to oversee a transformative behaviour change programme encouraging people of all ages and backgrounds to walk and cycle more.
It also follows yesterday’s announcement by the Department for Transport of a £1 million fund to enable and encourage more children to walk to school which will benefit schools across the region. The walk to school programme will be delivered in the West Midlands by Living Streets.
We’re sure Shanaze will inspire all generations and abilities to move more, helping people from Coventry to Dudley, Walsall to Wolverhampton, Birmingham and beyond to live healthier and happier lives.
