Two local charities have launched a walking challenge to raise money for children and young people in Nottingham.
The October Step Challenge involves participants walking 10,000 steps a day – the average number of steps a nurse takes each shift – throughout October, to raise money for Nottingham Children’s Hospital and Nottingham Forest Community Trust.
Participants can sign up quickly and easily on Facebook, and will receive a step tracker sheet when they begin, and a certificate and limited edition medal when they complete their challenge.
Louise Knight, Head of Fundraising at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, said:
“We’re so excited to be launching the October Step Challenge, in partnership with Nottingham Forest Community Trust.
“The challenge is a perfect way to stay active this autumn, while supporting your local hospitals and local community at the same time. You might want to sign up to show your support for our NHS, or help Nottingham Forest Community Trust’s work with young people in your area.
“Whatever the reason, the money raised through the October Step Challenge will make a real difference to children and young people across Nottingham.”
