Footsteps For Your Foodbank - 10,000 steps every day throughout February

Published on January 14, 2022

Support Start Up Stirling, as well as getting fit in February by taking the 10,000 steps challenge. An average person walks 5,000 steps every day, but going for a walk for just an extra 30 minutes can boost that figure to 10,000 steps. There are lots of different activities that you can do to achieve this that will help to keep you motivated. You don’t need a watch or pedometer that measures your step count, as there are plenty of phone apps that can help you measure this for free if you wish.

To help you keep track of your step count, there is a calendar to keep you motivated and throughout the month we will be posting some different ideas on Facebook and Twitter. So put your best foot forward in February and share with us what activities you are doing to take your 10,000 steps each day! #FootstepsForYour Foodbank.

Our Communities and Fundraising Manager Julie, is undertaking the challenge in memory of her Mum Sandra, who would have been 75 years old on the 9th February this year. For much of the last 15 years of her life, Sandra wasn’t well enough to walk far, so this challenge is a good reminder that if you can, you should! If you don’t want to commit to walking yourself, but you would like to sponsor her, please visit her JustGiving page to donate. Thank you!

At the end of February, each participant will receive a Certificate of Participation that you can display, to show your friends, family or colleagues how well you have done and how much you have raised to help people living in hardship throughout the Stirling Council area.
