Want to lead a healthier life, raise funds for charities you love, and fit it into your busy lifestyle?

Then join a groundbreaking new national challenge, One Million Steps

Recently a shortlisted finalist for The Great British Entrepreneurs Social Good Award Wales, One Million Steps hopes to raise millions of pounds for Welsh charities of all sizes.

Participants walk an average of 10,000 steps a day for 100 days – one million steps or 500 miles. Research shows the average Briton walks only 3000 to 4000 steps a day with one poll showing, for many, it could be as low as 2000 steps.
