1 Million Steps for 1 Million Pennies
From my front door
1 million steps from my front door during lockdown and just beyond! Zara’s incredible story towards recovery, supported by inspirational partner Ian was the source of my own quest over the last few months to support the wonderful charity 3 Million Steps. Thinking back to walking for a day with Zara and Ian last year as they reached 900 miles on their epic 1064 mile Journey from John O Groats to Lands End, gave me an idea – that day generated around 24,000 steps which was added to the cumulative steps total for their fundraising … Read more of Susan’s initiative and challenge.
During the initial Covid 19 restrictions and keeping within the appropriate government guidelines for the various stages of lockdown, an idea was forming in my mind! What if I could achieve ONE MILLION STEPS leaving from my front door, using remote pathways and long-distance tracks in the Surrey/Sussex area and at the same time raise funds for the amazing charity 3 Million Steps?
Paths I could reach and follow from my home included the Sussex Border Path, Downs Link, Greensand Way and North Downs Way … all accessible from my door and facilitated by the amazing OS App – a birthday present from my children!
Between the start of Lockdown and the 4th July I journeyed for 1,005,000 steps, spurred on by mostly incredible blues skies and glorious landscapes. I capped off this journey on 31 July by walking to the top of England with an ascent of Scafell Pike. On many occasions I was accompanied by my husband Geoff, thank you so much for the unstinting support.
1,064,000 steps in total.
I’m asking please for your support now to turn
1 MILLION STEPS into 1 MILLION PENNIES to support the wonderful charity objectives to support recovery from brain injury and augment the inspirational story that is 3 million steps and their outcomes for the beneficiaries of the charity.
