Get Active, Get Rewarded
SHBC will be teaming up with health app ‘Sweatcoin’ to run a six-month physical activity campaign across the Borough later this year.
How it works:
After downloading the Sweatcoin app, user’s steps are recorded and converted into a digital currency (‘sweatcoins’) which can be redeemed against a host of rewards from local partners and businesses.
These start with smaller rewards (such as a free drink from a local coffee shop) and build up to bigger rewards over time. It’s like a cross between a supermarket loyalty card and a step counter - the more you walk, the more you earn!
There will also be quizzes, competitions and challenges to keep everyone engaged and moving.
What do you need?
No equipment is required other than a smartphone, offering a great way to get more exercise, enjoy the great outdoors and make a positive impact on the environment without spending any money.
Users can also take a more charitable approach to earning sweatcoins by donating them to support good causes through the app.
Local businesses, health partners and others who might be interested in being part of this exciting project are invited to get in touch via email@example.com to discuss how they can get involved.
When is it happening?
The Surrey Heath version of the app is set to launch in late spring/early summer, but is dependent on the impact of local restrictions.
Updates will be posted to this webpage and our social media channels.
