Our Step Up for January is back for 2023. This event is perfect for those who want to get back into exercise after Christmas. You can either walk or run this event with your friends & family. This is tougher than you think so please don’t underestimate the challenge this event is.
Walk or run 12,000 steps every day for a month and raise money for Cost of Cancer
Sign up for your fundraising pack and online giving page with Wonderful.org.
12,000 steps a day for a month? How far is that?
Based on the average person’s stride it’s 6 miles (9.65km). You would have walked 186 miles by the end of the month. It would be like walking from Swansea to London, or Manchester to Cardiff.
How can I hit my steps target?
There are plenty of ways you can hit your daily target. Perhaps you’ve got a job where you’re walking or perhaps you could even walk to work. If you’ve got a dog take the dog out for extra walks. You could even dowload a running app and get the miles in through that, you’ll soon be notching up the steps.
Can I skip a day?
Don’t panic if you have an off day. You could always make the steps up on a nice weekend walk with the family – or just put in a bit of extra effort and make up the numbers across the next week.
How can I track my steps?
All you need is a pedometer that will count your steps for you. Your phone will have lots of free apps to track your steps each day or you can buy one from your local gym or running shop.
