Cardiff and Vale Health Charity
The Million Steps Challenge

About Us

We are the official charity supporting all the work of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board; more than 300 different wards and departments.

Your donations don't replace NHS money; they provide things over and above what the NHS can, and support pioneering and innovative work for the benefit of those that need expert healthcare in Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan, and the whole of Wales.

Why we are taking part

It's been a tough 2020 and fundraising events have been cancelled. So we are launching our first Million Steps Challenge!

Join us on a 100 day celebration of movement and wellbeing. One Million Steps; that's approximately 500 miles but it's your 10,000 steps a day over 100 days. Cross that finish line and you would have walked more than the the distance of London to Zurich, 8000 times around a football pitch or 18 marathons!

Plus learn mindfulness with audio tracks and hit those physical fitness guidelines with a Fit For 15 strength and conditioning program with videos.

Take the challenge for Cardiff and Vale Health Board and help us support our patients, their families and our staff.

The Million Steps Challenge:

Your Life, Your Challenge, Your Way™

Walking is great for our physical and mental health. But we tell ourselves we can’t find the time, we’re tired, we’ll start tomorrow.

But, big things can happen from very small beginnings. Walk, jog, run or even dance your way to a million steps. It all adds up to an awesome 500 miles!

Challenge yourself, compete with friends, and even raise money for a good cause. No more travelling to events, overnight stays, worries about training, expensive entry costs or high fundraising targets.

Sign up with Google Fit or Apple Health, sync your own devices OR use our full package* pedometer and app.

Everyone participant receives an introduction to mindfulness and strength and conditioning.

* Full package includes Bluetooth pedometer and specially designed app.
