With integrated Bluetooth smart pedometers and management dashboards, you use your supporter’s journey to engage with your brand, message and mission and support good causes with our integrated fundraising platform.
We see the challenge as a journey. And unlike other challenges, we feel it would be a huge missed opportunity for participants and organisations not to take important health and well-being lessons with them and to their communities.
Completing one million steps/500 miles in 100 days is amazing stuff but we want participants to meet the NHS and Centre for Disease Control guidelines for healthy living
So we provide your staff and supporters with videos and content covering:
– An introduction to mindfulness with meditation ,
– Body conditioning and strength training exercises
– 20 Key Yoga pose program to get that body stretched
“Where will your Million Steps take you?” is our mantra!
