Thurrock’s Beat the Streets runs rings around the world

beatwoodBeat the Street Thurrock players are well on their way to circling the globe a second time.

The original aim was to collectively walk 25,000 miles, the distance around the world, in less than seven weeks. That record was smashed within ten days and the new target of 50,000 miles could be reached in the next week. How much further can the walking champions go?

There have been over 200,000 Beat the Street card swipes as those taking part top up points for their teams and chosen charities. These include Little Haven Children’s Hospice, Friends of Treetops, and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. Players who have not registered for a chosen good cause are urged to do so.

The spot prizes are also rewarding people meeting the challenge. They range from family swims at Impulse leisure to £150 hampers from Proctor and Gamble.

Companies sponsoring prizes are: The Thurrock Hotel; the Orsett Show; La Tasca; Millie’s Cookies; Boost; Proctor & Gamble; Impulse Leisure; Partyman World; Specsavers; Riley’s Snooker Hall; Forget me not Flowers; the Body Shop; Small Monsters; Wow Balloons; Explore Learning; Nandos; Ikea; Tesco Express; Tesco Extra; and West Ham Football Club.

The Beat the Street Thurrock team will be at Stanford Music Festival on Saturday 5 July with two extra Beat Boxes. Pay them a visit for extra points and a chance to win a spot prize.
