Pushing Ahead Launches New BetterPoints Reward Programme

07 marzo 2018

Get Active in your area

We are launching  a new rewards programme in partnership with Norfolk County Council and the Pushing Ahead partnership.

This programme is open to residents of Norwich and Great Yarmouth, where you can earn rewards for walking, running and cycling in Norwich and up to 10km outside the city and across the whole of Great Yarmouth.

Once you step outside your home you can earn BetterPoints for walking, cycling or running. Then use your BetterPoints to reward yourself, by selecting any of these rewards, or donate them to any of the charities from this list. If you spot a charity you'd like to see on the BetterPoints website let us know by getting in touch here.

As well as earning points for recording your travel activity every day, every month we are giving away 10,000 BetterPoints (worth £10) to a new participant of the scheme.
