Step for St Mary’s

1 January @ 12:15 am - 3:15 am

No matter how you spend Christmas, whether you’re partying every night or curled up by the fire with a good book, when January rolls around, we are all thinking the same thing.
How do I make this year better than the last? Well…we have the answer.
Call it a New Year’s Resolution if you wish, but we prefer to call it a positive lifestyle change that you won’t want to quit half way through.
We are challenging you to walk, run, climb or dance at least 9000 steps a day from January 1st to 31st. It’s a brilliant way to blow off those cobwebs and get active!
But you might be wondering why 9000 steps? To put it simply, it costs £9000 a day for St Mary’s Hospice to care for those that need us, which is why we are asking for a minimum sponsorship of £30 for this challenge. Your support will help ensure we can be there for those who need it and continue to be there for as long as they need us.
So not only is this challenge an excellent way to stay active and get healthy, you will be supporting your local hospice at the same time! Get yourself signed up!
So what are you waiting for? Take the first step and register now for more information.
