The Beat the Street activity game is coming to Rotherham
Beat the Street Rotherham is set to take place from Wednesday, 14th April for six weeks, concluding on Wednesday, 26th May. Beat the Street is a free, interactive challenge that encourages people of all ages to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives by turning the area into a six-week game.
Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health and is funded by and Rotherham Council’s grant funding allocation from DfT’s Sustainable Transport Access Fund and the National Lottery on behalf of Sport England.
Rotherham Council Cabinet Member for Public Health, Cllr David Roche, said: “We are delighted to bring this innovative and compelling game to Rotherham and we can’t wait to see how far everyone is able to walk, run, cycle, roll and scoot as part of their daily exercise during the Beat the Street challenge.
“We know that lockdown has had an impact people’s activity levels and Beat the Street gives a safe and stimulating way for young people and families to get out and get active with a purpose. It’s clear that now, more than ever, it is vitally important to ensure that we adopt healthy lifestyle habits around incorporating physical activity into our days and trying to travel in more active ways by walking or cycling.”
