“It’s been much harder than I thought it would be but already I’m feeling fitter for it! I’ve almost given up using my car, walking everywhere, and trying to vary my walks to make it interesting. We had a lovely weekend in St Andrews and I walked the length and breadth of the beach, and all around town. I’ve been walking in all conditions, but so far enjoying the challenge on behalf of Strathcarron” Alison, Strathcarron Step Challenge participant.

Our Strathcarron Step Challenge has now crossed the half way point at the middle of September and we couldn't be prouder of all our Hospice Heroes who are taking part in the challenge and pushing themselves every single day to reach the 15,000 step goal.

This quote from Alison who is taking part in the challenge really sums it up: pushing yourself, changing up your routine and feeling good for it - both for yourself personally, and for the difference your sponsorship will make to Strathcarron Hospice. Every £150 raised from the Strathcarron Step Challenge could pay for a block of rehab for one of our patients: enabling them to return home, with confidence, following a stay in our in-patient unit.

Thank you to everyone taking part, good luck and keep going! You really are making a difference.
