BEAT THE STREET is designed to inspire people to make small changes, such as walking or cycling to work every day, to improve their health. Two hundred and thirty-five thousand have played Beat the Street in over 40 programmes worldwide to date & in 2015, 300 schools played the game and more than 175,000 people took part! As well as major health benefits to the community, participating in activity such as Beat the Street each day has been shown to dramatically improve concentration levels of children in class and adults at work. Further benefits can be seen with reduced traffic congestion around the game areas. How does it work? - ‘Beat Boxes’ will be positioned throughout the local area of Waterford city, Kilmacthomas and Dungarvan. Players receive a card which they tap on the Beat Boxes as they walk, cycle, or scoot around town, earning points for themselves and their team. The more boxes you tap, the more points you earn. Players can view their progress online and see how they are performing. Here they can also see how their team is doing on the leader boards. The top community team will win a prize and there will also be prizes for individuals who have walked the furthest!

The BEAT THE STREET TEAM will be in Kilmacthomas from 9.30am on Tuesday ahead of the first walk to answer any questions you might have and register you for the game!
