Step Up for St Clare Hospice: Charity challenges supporters to walk 10,000 steps a day in July
Hospice supporters are being challenged to step up and raise much-needed money with a month-long campaign.
St Clare Hospice has launched its Step Up fundraiser, which asks participants to walk 10,000 steps a day for the whole of July – the same number a hospice nurse walks on an average shift.
Participants are urged to collect sponsorship for their 310,000-step challenge, which they can complete individually or as part of a team.
Among those signed up is 27-year-old Lottie Stock, who said: “I’ll be doing most of my steps on my daily dog walks with my French bulldog, Bear, so he’ll be benefiting from the extra exercise too and keeping me company!”
Leading the Step Up campaign is St Clare’s challenges and events fundraiser, Dani De’ath, who said: “You can do the challenge alone or with a team, supporting each other to reach your goal.
"Whether you decide to walk, swim or run your steps is completely up to you!”
Step Up is free to enter, and individuals will receive a St Clare T-shirt. Participants are asked to commit to fundraise as much as possible by setting up an online fundraising page or collecting sponsorship offline.
