Step Up for St Clare

Could you Step Up for St Clare this July? Take on our sponsored step challenge by completing 10,000 steps a day, or 4.5miles, every day in July.

By Stepping Up you’ll be raising vital funds to help your local hospice care for more families in your area.

Sign up to Step up today and…

  • walk, run or swim
  •  receive a supporter t-shirt
  •  raise life-changing funds!

How to take part

All you need to do is sign up using the form below, and you’ll be sent your very own St Clare Hospice supporter t-shirt – so every one can see you’re Stepping Up for St Clare! Then set up your JustGiving fundraising page and start collecting that sponsorship.

If you don’t own a step counting device, there are lots of free step counters that you can download for your phone. Just take a look in your app store and search ‘step counter’. That’s the easiest way to count how many steps you’re taking a day. Read on to see our FAQs about Step Up!

Take part as a Team!

Could you step up as a Family or Community Group and take part in a sponsored step challenge as a team?

If you can’t walk every day in July, team up with others to collectively smash the step target. You can set up a team JustGiving page and each share the same page to collect sponsorship together.

The Step Up challenge is free to enter, and individuals will receive their very own St Clare Hospice t-shirt. All we ask is that you commit to fundraising as much sponsorship as possible!

Step Up FAQs

How far is 10,000 steps?

10,000 steps is equal to 4.5 miles, or 1 hour and 30 minutes walking, depending on your stride length and walking speed.

What happens if I don’t hit my 310,000 step goal?

Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really tough challenge, so it will be hard to complete! But we can’t thank you enough for Stepping Up and taking part.  Don’t worry if you’re unable to complete your daily steps sometimes , just keep trying. Take it at your own pace and resume your challenge when it’s safe for you.

Do I need to prove my steps?

Don’t worry, we trust you! You don’t need to send us your step count but you might want to post about your progress on your JustGiving page or update people on your social media pages, to let all your friends and family know how you’re getting on with your challenge – and encourage them to sponsor you!

What are some good ways to walk 10,000 steps a day?

Get the challenge done doing what you love! Here are some ways you can clock up extra steps:

  • Do an online fitness class at home
  • Take the dog for an extra walk
  • Do some gardening
  • Get off the train or bus a stop early
  • Explore your local area
  • Always take the stairs
  • Meet a friend for a socially-distanced walk
