This is another new edition to the blog and each month, here, I will be reporting on news stories people who are walking to raise money for charity or fundraising event or anything else that may be of interest.
Today’s post is about Cancer Research.
In March Cancer Research is running Walk All Over Cancer step challenge (the link for the challenge page is here). This is the same challenge that I took part in during September 2016. The challenge is simple, all you need to do is take 10,000 steps each day, a grand total of 31000 steps for the whole month, and get sponsored for it! If you don’t reach target on any given day you can aim to incorporate the loss into the next day’s steps, or if you have “over stepped” in the days before, you can use the excess steps to make up your target.
There are lots of ways to get to 10000 steps each day, last year I made most of them up after work while walking Roxy for a few miles each night. An easier way to get to 10000 steps would be to break down your target into smaller goals, for example 2500 steps by 11am, 5000 by 2pm, 7500 by 4pm then all the rest can be made up before bed time!
I am still thinking about whether to sign up this time, or whether to sign up singly or try and get a walking group together to do this challenge.
Will you be taking part?
