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.

We were delighted to welcome Little Hands Nursery AKA The Red Hot Chilli Steppers to Strathcarron last week to celebrate their completing the Strathcarron Step Challenge in September, taking an impressive 15,000 steps each every day of the month.

In doing so, the team raised a fantastic £955 in sponsorship for the Hospice which could pay for 6 people to receive a block of rehabilitation with our physiotherapy team. It is often the case that patients will return home after a short stay in our in-patient unit and our physiotherapy team work with patients to build their strength and confidence to return home.

A huge thanks and well done to the Red Hot Chilli Steppers and all the individuals and teams who took part in the challenge, helping to raise more than £6,000.

The Strathcarron Step Challenge launched in September of this year and will return again for 2020. If you would like more information or to sign up for the next Strathcarron Step Challenge, please get in touch with the Fundraising Team on 01324 826 222 or [email protected]
