Join #TeamCHSF and march 1 million steps in March!

Getting involved couldn’t be simpler – get the family together and between you walk 1,000,000 steps during the month of March.

Take this family challenge and get your March on!

Commit to your family taking 1 million steps in a month – that’s right, in a month! This challenge will see you taking lots of steps to raise life-changing funds for CHSF, our heart unit, warriors and families.

You’ll need to aim for around 32,000 steps a day between you to reach your target. That means you’ll need to get the whole family involved to take on this whopping 1 million step challenge!

 “We organised ourselves through a Whatsapp group and tallied up our weekly steps. We soon reached 1 million steps…so aimed for 2 million!”  — Otis’ Orsome Walkers

After heart warrior Otis received two life-saving heart surgeries at Leeds, his family and friends knew they wanted to do something to thank CHSF and the hospital for the care Otis and his parents, Tim and Mariella received.

Read more about Otis’ story and what inspired his family to take on March in March last year!

How can I take part?

  • Count your steps when you walk up the stairs, ditch the car and walk to school or work and head out on some long family walks (you’ll get some additional family time together too!) You can use a mobile phone or a smart watch to help you!
  • Get all your family to add their steps to the Step Tracker at the end of each day (we have a printable sheet for you!). This will keep you motivated ’til the very end.

Need some help or advice?
