Beat the Street

We are looking for energetic “Beat the Street” volunteer Ambassadors to join our team!

Beat the Street (BtS) is an
exciting mass participation behaviour change programme which transforms
activity levels and improves mental and physical well-being across a community.
Beat the Street turns towns into giant games. Earn points, win prizes and
discover more about your area by walking, running and cycling. All the
participants need to do is pick up a Beat the Street card and swipe Beat Boxes
across the community within Stockton on Tees.

The Beat the Street game takes
place over a 6-week period across the entire Borough. Using game cards, were adults
and children tap card readers placed on street furniture to get points for
journeys. The game is displayed on a website where leaderboards contain school,
workplace and community teams all on a journey together.
