Beat the Street Blaby District Project
Beat the Street is a fantastic opportunity to bring together schools, businesses and communities – there will be hundreds of pounds worth of prizes available to win.
Beat the Street is designed to inspire people to make small changes, such as walking or cycling to school every day, to improve health and help re-set the way in which we embed physical activity into everyday life. So far over 900,000 people have taken part in Beat the Street games across the UK and Ireland.
To find out more about how Beat the Street works please view our short video:
‘Beat Boxes’ will be positioned around Blaby District. All pupils from 26 primary schools and Year 7 & 8 students from our secondary schools will receive a card or fob which they tap on the Beat Boxes as they walk, cycle, or scoot around the area, earning points for themselves and their team. Players can view their progress online, which will be live closer to the start of the game. Adults can sign up online too and participate in the competition as a workplace, community group or their child’s school.
There will be prizes for winning schools and teams, as well as plenty of lucky tap prizes, which could be won by any registered player taking part in the game.
The cost-free Blaby District game will commence on Wednesday 27th February and continue for six weeks and plays a key part of BDCs programme to increase active travel to improve air quality. For more information, please contact Ben Austin on 0116 272 7699 or email email@example.com.
