10K Step Challenge

Can you walk, jog or run 10,000 steps a day for 7 days?

Take on the Charity Week 10k Step Challenge and join thousands across the UK who will also be stepping to change children’s lives worldwide!

All you need is a good pair of walking boots (and maybe a brolly!) and you’ll be on your way to your 10k!

Together, let’s see how many millions of steps we can take as a community this Charity Week whilst also saving lives.

For Orphans and Vulnerable Children

Every child deserves the best start in life: a happy home, a safe place to play and access to quality education, medical care and nutrition.

For 1 in 5 children worldwide living in extreme poverty, many of these simple necessities and rights are out of reach. Instead, their life is incredibly challenging, with the risk of illiteracy, disease, child labour, lifelong poverty and even death.

Living in refugee camps, traumatized by war or unable to go to school in their local community due to crippling poverty, children lack the means to keep safe at home, access critical education and medical and/or psychosocial care.
