Diabetes UK Million Step Challenge launched

Posted onPosted on 29th Jun

Many people have re-discovered their love of walking in the great outdoors in recent months – and now a charity is asking them to join he Diabetes UK One Million Step Challenge to raise funds and help make a huge difference to the lives of people with diabetes across the UK.

All you have to do is take one million steps over three months and get sponsored for every stride.

You don’t have to limit yourself to walking to complete the challenge, you could choose to jog, or even dance the steps away. But however you choose to move, from 1st July take at least 10,000 steps a day for three months and you’ll reach your million step goal.

Additionally, this year sees the introduction of two new distances for the fundraising: the half a million step challenge, perfect for those short on time or for anyone may find taking 10,000 steps a day difficult, and the longer 1.7 million step challenge, for those who really want to test themselves this summer.

The Diabetes UK One Million Step challenge is free to register and there is no minimum sponsorship target. The event runs from 1st July to 30th September. Find out more and sign up at
