Biggest stepper for week 3 and overall was Mike with average daily step count of 17,176 – fantastic achievement.
Ian and Steve deserve a mention as the most improved walkers, with a consistent increase over the 3 weeks, each of them doubling their step count from 5,000 in week 1.
We remain 11th for steps and 5th for fundraising.
Below are some pics from night and early morning walks, which seems to have been the theme of week 3.
Well done to all walkers, and especially to Mike for setting the pace this week 😊

Pace Targets 2 MILLION Steps for ‘Finding your Feet’
We are proud to be taking part in an initiative to raise funds for an amazing organisation that offers vital support to amputees.
Our team of 12 people (seven Pace Rehabilitation staff and five of their family members) have committed to walking at least 2 million steps between them in February to raise money for the amputee community.
Each members of our team has to walk at least 10,000 steps every day to make sure we reach at least 2 million steps.
So far, we’ve reached more 75% of our financial target of £1,000– thank you to all our supporters so far!

The Step: 2 Million challenge is to raise money that will allow Finding Your Feet to continue the support they provide, which has become vital for many amputees and their families. During the pandemic, they’ve delivered a curriculum of activities to increase fitness and benefit emotional well-being. In 2020, they made 3,674 check in calls to prevent isolation in lockdown.
Finding your Feet supports families affected by amputation or limb absence through a range of sporting initiatives and social inclusion projects designed to positively affect both physical and mental wellbeing. Isolation is a huge problem for many amputees.
