Relaunch of Street Tag
With the summer months upon and a great time to get out and about to get fit and active we are relaunching the Street Tag Newham Schools Leaderboard programme. This programme is designed to encourage families to be physically active, to connect with green spaces, and is an opportunity to rediscover their local area as well as earning rewards for their school. Street Tag is a free child and family-friendly mobile application that uses virtual tags to incentivise communities and families to become more physically active and boost mental health.
With Street Tag, participants record the distance they walk, run, or cycle by collecting virtual tags with their smartphone at various locations, watching their total distance accumulate to climb up the School’s leaderboard; steps are converted into points by syncing their steps into the Street Tag app.
On the Street Tag app, you collect points assigned to virtual tags all-around your community including green spaces, once you are within a 40-metre radius of any virtual tag, your app will automatically collect the points, steps can also be synced and converted into Street Tag points. These points add up in real-time on your school’s leaderboard, with prizes to be won at the end of each season.
You can also use the Street Tag 'Power Hour' to commit to an hour of exercise at least 24 hours in advance and have all your tag points collected during that hour tripled and maintain a daily streak of physical activity for even more bonuses.
Start using Street Tag to explore and boost your daily physical activity and mental health. Collect virtual tags, sync your steps, try different experiences in the virtual playground and WIN PRIZES.
