Beat the Street is coming to Limerick City between September 13th and November 1st 2017. Beat the Street is being delivered by Intelligent Health with support from Limerick Sports Partnership and is funded by Sports Ireland, Healthy Ireland, Dormant Accounts and Limerick City & County Council.
It’s a community-wide program which improves the health and wellbeing of entire towns and cities by getting people of all ages moving. Beat the Street lasts for up to 2 months and transforms the town into a giant playground.
Participants can pick up a Beat the Street card from their local distribution points which contains radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology and tap them against sensors called ‘Beat Boxes’ which will be located on lamp posts throughout Limerick City. Players receive points for each box they tap and can even create or join teams which can receive prizes for tapping the most boxes; this motivates entire schools, community groups and workplaces into becoming more active.
