£2,020raised of £5,000 target by 62 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to Donate to Several charities, close to my heart ( now that I have one that works )

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The 5,000,000 STEP CHALLENGE

The 21st March 2017, the day I got a second chance at having a full and active life after a " TRIPLE HEART BYPASS " . So one year on I have decided that a challenge is in order to get fitter and healthier and hopefully with the support of some generous people, raise £5000 for a number of charities close to my now fully functional heart !

So the challenge is as it says, do 5,000,000 ( yes you read that right ) 5 MILLION steps in a year, so thats an average of just under 14,000 every day. 40% more than the FITBIT target of 10,000 a day.

So today i've managed it !! GO ME !!!

But from the following picture you can see it will be no WALK in the park ! I will have to almost double my daily steps from this time last year, averaging a poor 7,901 a day up to now. For those of you that dont go by steps, its about 6.5 miles a day, EVERY DAY............. FOR A YEAR !

So dig deep people, I promise to do my utmost to accomplish this challenge and raise some funds for lots of very deserving causes and keep you all updated with progress.

There will be special one off events throughout the year and i'll need your support, encouragement and even participation.

Wish me luck, please !
