The challenge

Join the Facebook group

Step it up this summer

Take a giant step for people with diabetes and a million little ones for yourself by taking on the One Million Step Challenge.

You’ll need to take an average of at least 10,000 steps a day to be successful. But how you do them and where you do them is completely up you.

Whether it’s shuffling home from the shops, hiking up a hill, or getting down on the dancefloor, they all count.

The money you raise while you do it will fund our fight for a world where diabetes can do no harm.

Your fundraising will pay for our scientists to make the next big breakthrough, make our next life-changing campaign a reality and means we can be there for people with diabetes when they need us.

4 steps to registration

It’s free to take part

I’m really enjoying doing the One Million Steps Challenge. Raising money is a great incentive to dust off the hiking boots!”
