About Our Events
Beat the Street
What Is It?
Beat the Street is a free, real-life walking and cycling game to get kids - and their families - moving. Over two years we will be bringing Beat the Street to six areas of the UK.
Beat the Street in Action:
“We didn't realise such lovely views and places existed within a few minutes of walking”
“Our focus was always to incorporate the walking into our teaching and learning and encourage parents to include it as part of their daily weekly routines. Soon everybody was tapping and looking forward to the weekend walks.
We met so many lovely people from other schools during our tapping expeditions. Honestly we felt it united so many different schools. This has been a success for us. We were walking to different places and parks, that were local and close by, but we'd never been to before. Didn't realise such lovely views and places existed within a few minutes of walking... and all in East London!
We organised picnics and a father and daughter walk on the last day to encourage more family time. These are the real outcomes we value and hope to continue to build on.”
