Sign Up to Walk with the Homeless: 10k Steps a Day in June Challenge

Please sign up before June begins so you can start fundraising before you start walking.

 

In June walk just 10,000 steps a day where EVERY STEP you take will represent one of the 300,000 homeless people in the UK right now* (10k steps is roughly 5 miles).

Did you know that a homeless person in a rural area has no choice but to walk 30,000 steps (13 miles) every day just to access services to meet their basic needs?

This equates to 5 and 1/4 homeless people walking the circumference of the world in a year.

Pledge to try to reach our target of 10k steps every day in June, or set your own target. Walk as little or as much as you like in June 2024.

Money raised will go into the Ferry Project’s ‘Hardship Fund’ that can be directly accessed by the homeless people they support and is used to cover any costs they don’t have finances to cover.

Make your steps count.

We are also planning to invite everyone who has taken up the challenge to meet up for a group walk to launch the Challenge in the afternoon of 1st June in Wisbech, as well as to take part in the Walking Parade at Wisbech Rose Fair on 29th June to help mark the end of the Challenge. More infomation coming soon.
