Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Since being Pregnant (It's 11 Mar and I'm now 22 Weeks), I have been walking every day where possible to try and be as fit and healthy as possible for me, and to hopefully have a healthy baby.

I challenge myself to do 10k steps a day, I'm quite naturally a lazy person so it can be a challenge for me! With me having Asthma though (and allergies which worsens the asthma), I know it's important to keep myself as healthy as possible, for me and for the baby.

This is where the idea came into play to raise Money for AAIR Charity (Asthma, Allergy & inflammation Research).

I am asking for donations to help keep me motivated in my walking efforts whilst at the same time raising vital funds for AAIR Charity.

My personal challenge is to complete 840,000 steps in the next 12 weeks, starting now. This is an average of 10k steps a day. At the end of the 12 weeks I will be 34 weeks Pregnant. That and my combined laziness will make it quite the challenge!

I will post regular updates, using the evidence from my fitness watch :-D

I would like to note that whilst it will be a challenge, I'm not silly and nor will I be. I take my walks easy, it's not a race to see how fast I do them, just that I do do them. I would also like to note that should anything occur where I shouldn't continue any more, then of course of I'll stop, but I still hope in the meantime to raise some vital funds for the charity.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thanks all, Becky
