Feetbeat encourages workplaces and organisations and members of the general public to get teams of four to eight people together and participate in regular walking. Teams set a goal of a distance they would like to reach by choosing a destination on either the Auckland-north cartoon map, the Great Migration Map or the the New Zealand map and work towards reaching or exceeding this distance.
Teams progress is monitored using the team record sheet. Every 30 minutes of walking earns one square, irrespective of the journey or the map chosen.
Teams are encouraged create unique and fun names and take photos. Prizes are available for the most popular team name, most creative team photo and best team story. There are weekly spot prizes courtesy of Fruitrunners. Although Feetbeat isn’t intended to be competitive it can foster a fun interdepartmental rivalry and competition within the workplace.
- Feetbeat was launched by Auckland Regional Public Health Service in 2004 and has been growing since.
