Today, your child will bring home information about a new Southwark health initiative – Beat the Street.
Beat the Street is a real life walking, cycling and running game for a whole community, which runs from Wednesday 19 September – Wednesday 7 November 2018. Beat the Street Southwark is being delivered by Intelligent Health on behalf of Southwark Council, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity and Transport for London.
Score points and win prizes by walking, cycling or running from point to point and tapping a registered Beat the Street card or fob on sensors (Beat Boxes) which are placed on lamp posts across four areas of Southwark – Peckham, Old Kent Road, Faraday and North Walworth. Check out the map to see where you can play!
There are fantastic prizes on offer for individuals and teams! Teams are able to win prizes of up to £300 of vouchers for sports and fitness equipment on our four leaderboards for schools and community groups. Visit the leaderboard page for more information. Registered players are eligible to win a prize for a ‘Lucky Tap’ on a Beat Box; all you need to do is get tapping.
