Back by popular demand and in its second year; sign up for the 40-Day Step Challenge

From 14 May 2018, we’re asking people to walk 10,000 steps a day for 40 days and raise funds for vital type 1 diabetes medical research.  You will complete a total of 400,000 steps by the end of the challenge – a step to represent each person currently living with type 1 diabetes in the UK.

Take part with your friends, family or colleagues and see who can clock up the most steps, or if you’re less competitive, why not register as a team and complete the challenge together.

So if you’re a keen rambler, want to get a bit fitter or just fancy exploring new – or familiar – ground on foot, sign up today to take on the 40-Day Step Challenge!

Free to register

You can take part on your own or as part of a team. It’s FREE to register and there’s no minimum sponsorship target, but why not challenge yourself to top the fundraising leaderboard and exceed all expectations!

Get your free pedometer

This year’s welcome packs are newer and better than ever. With an event booklet and record card, a poster to tick off each day, and your very own JDRF wrist watch to help you count your steps, you’ll be well prepared for the challenge!

The event will run from Monday 14 May until Friday 22 June 2018.
