Where children and grown-ups wear the shoes that make them happiest, helping us create safer, more walkable streets for all.
During last Happy Shoesday, thousands of children and grown-ups around the country wore their happy shoes.
They all want the right to walk to school safely, with fewer traffic jams and less toxic fumes in the air. They will be taking part in our event; Happy Shoesday which encourages more children to walk to school and raises vital funds for our work.
Your participation, support and donations are invaluable to us! We want to shout a massive thank you to all the schools who took part in 2018, helping us raise over £25K for our charitable work to create safer streets.
A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it's just over half. Why have we engineered walking out of our lives? Some of the reasons include:
With your help we can make streets safer for all and bring back a walking culture because the more we walk, the more our communities become friendlier, safer and nicer places to live.

Not able to run Happy Shoesday in May this year?
No problem! We are offering school the option of an alternative date in October.
If your school is unable to join the fun on the two specific dates suggested, that is fine too! All resources provided are undated so you can pick a day that best suits your school.

You are my grubby soul
With me for my morning stroll
Wherever the journey goes
You are the home for my toes
You are the guardian of my feet
As I meander down the street
Where my head may look
You are the ones that keep me grounded
Whether a battered old talking shoe
Or something blue suede and new
To you, I'll always be true
I wouldn't get far without you
Ode to the Shoes, Archie Burden
