Step Challenge

This September sees the launch of the Strathcarron Step Challenge: an interactive, virtual event which will see you push your daily step count, aiming for 450K steps across the month of September.

Follow in the footsteps of our Domestic Goddesses, Kim & Liz, who take 15K steps every day keeping Strathcarron Hospice spotless and help us make every moment count for our patients and their families.

There are 2 options to sign up to this event: Challenge yourself to reach 450K steps in September, or sign up in a team of 4 with your friends, family, colleagues or classmates and compete with other teams on our Step Challenge Leaderboard.

With your help, we can continue to provide specialist care and support to our patients. We'd love you to aim to raise £150 which could pay for one full block of rehab for one person, enabling them to return home, with confidence, following a stay in our in-patient unit.

September has arrived and with it, the start of the Strathcarron Step Challenge 2019.

A big welcome and thank you to everyone who has started the challenge and we hope you had a successful first day aiming for the 15,000 step target.

Don’t worry if you didn’t reach the 15K on Day 1 or if there are days that you know you’re not going to manage to reach your goal: any extra steps you take all count. So, you could have one weekend where you walk 40 or 45,000 steps – this gives you a little wiggle room during the week. We have the whole month to reach the 450,000 step target, and we can do it!

Here’s to bright mornings and dry evenings; let’s make the most of the longer days and in doing so, help Strathcarron Hospice provide specialist palliative care to for local people at the end of their lives.
