Challenge yourself to complete one million steps over three months starting 1st October 2020.
Getting sponsored for every step to help a very worthy charity.

You can walk or jog them. And even work in a team if you are limited on time to be able to do them all yourself. It’s easier than you think – just over 11,000 steps a day for 90 days will not only get you to your target of 1,000,000 but you will also notice the fitness and health benefits too.

Walking 10,000 steps a day can help you to:

  • Feel more energetic and awake over time
  • Look after your blood pressure and heart health
  • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight
  • Sleep better
  • Reduce stress levels  

Who I am organising this sponsored event for is an even better reason to do the challenge though…

The Heather Club

Like so many others, the Heather Club has had to make huge changes to the way they operate. Unfortunately, due to the nature of their charity, they have had to close their door temporarily so that they can protect their members… but they have big plans to change that…

For almost 40 years, The Heather Club has relied on the generosity of the local community and businesses to provide  award-winning care for adults with dementia. 

The Heather Club offers sociability and stimulation to people living with early stage dementia and memory loss, providing respite to their carers, by providing a range of activities in a day centre twice a week. We deliver a friendly, happy, caring and safe environment for our members whilst providing an environment of unconditional positive regard engaging in activities to help stimulate memories in a professional, compassionate and inclusive way.

Why we are fundraising:

Helping others, making a difference, and raising money for a good cause can give you a real boost. Combine that with the health benefits of walking and you have the perfect Susan Beddall Holistic Training challenge.

This autumn, we’re coming together to raise money for The Heather Club. The Heather Club has been offering support for dementia patients and the clients in Hemel Hempstead for over 40 years. However, this year due to Covid-19, The Heather Club is facing real financial difficulties. While having to suspend their twice a week day care service, The Heather Club is introducing at home respite care – where volunteers and nurses will go out into the community to stimulate, interact and bring smiles to their clients who have been home bound.

The funds from our Million Step Challenge will be going directly to support this new outreach program and provide much needed care, respite and comfort to those vulnerable families in Hemel Hempstead.


Registration info

  • Free to register
  • You must be aged 18 or over to register. Children are welcome to join, but they need a parent or guardian to register on their behalf.
  • You will need to source your own pedometer or step tracker. If you have a smartphone there are many incredibly good free apps.  I can convert miles to steps if you already use an app for your walking that only offers miles.  The general conversion is 1 miles = 2,000 steps so I will use this.
