CHAMPION children from Warren School, Chafford Hundred took a walk with Thurrock’s Mayor, Cllr Tony Fish and Mayoress Sue Bradish at intu Lakeside on Monday.
They were getting in their stride for the start of Beat the Street Thurrock which officially begins on Wednesday June 11. The walking game will challenge everyone in the borough to walk a collective total of 25,000 miles in seven weeks – the distance around the world. As the children regularly walk to school they have been chosen as ‘walk to school champions’ for the game.
Everyone in Thurrock is invited to take part in Beat the Street Thurrock. Players tap special cards or key rings as they walk different routes between over 100 Beat Boxes across the borough. Players and teams who get the most points will win cash prizes for their chosen charity. There are also spot prizes donated by local businesses like intu Lakeside.
