Take one million steps over three months.
Get sponsored for every stride.

Walk them. Jog them. Dance them. However you choose to move, from July take at least 10,000 steps a day for three months and you’ll reach your million. 

Also this year, we've introduced our half a million step challenge, perfect for those short on time, or who may find taking 10,000 steps a day harder right now.

And if you're ready for a bigger challenge, why not take on 1.7 million steps instead?

You do one million sponsored steps. We transform lives. Together we end the harm caused by diabetes.

Lets go.

Four steps to register

It's free to take part

  1. 1 Register online. If you’re under 18, you’ll need a parent or guardian to sign up first.

  2. 2 Set your fundraising target. There’s no minimum sponsorship, but a target of £120 or more is a great place to start.

  3. 3 Share your page. Just click on ‘Share’ and all your friends, family and colleagues can support you.

  4. 4 Track your steps. From 1 July, use a fitness app like Strava, or go old school with a pedometer and keep track of your steps tracked on your profile page.

Leaderboards

Leaderboards are a great motivator for many people, but please remember that the One Million Step Challenge is a personal challenge, not a competition. As long as you are increasing the number of steps you take daily, you're doing something truly amazing for yourself and people living with diabetes.
