Why we are taking part

The coronavirus pandemic is a physical health emergency on a global scale. But it is also a mental health emergency. Our research has found that up to 10 million people will need mental health support as a result of the pandemic. You can help us to keep fighting to ensure that the right help is there when it’s needed: now and in the future.

We know looking after our physical health can help us mentally, especially through winter. Even during Covid-19 restrictions, one thing we can do is get out and walk. Join us on the 1st January to join the challenge and help us support those at the frontline of this mental health crisis.

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.
