Working with Ashgate Hospicecare for their Step into Spring
Dave recently completed the One Million Step Challenge and has great advice for anyone taking part or thinking of signing up to our Step into Spring event in March.
Dave said: “My advice for anyone would be to give it a go! Step into Spring is for a fantastic local charity. We all know someone who has been supported by Ashgate Hospicecare.
“Life is about challenges and pushing yourself. You'll be surprised what you can achieve once you have a focus.
“When taking on a step challenge, you need to think of your feet! It sounds obvious but I always find they're overlooked. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes if you are looking to do long distances. Also, I swear by walking socks with two layers to help keep blisters at bay.”
Steptember 2020 -Dave set himself the challenge to walk 1 Million steps in September to raise some much-needed funds for Ashgate Hospice. He ended up doing much more!
875.74 Miles (which is the distance from Lands End to John O Groats)
Today’s steps 100,400 which is a nice round number
Today’s miles 46.82 which is the length of the Cheaterfield Canal
Have a goal, focus, be determined and never waver even for a second!
Now let’s raise a few more quid for Ashgate Hospice www.Justgiving.com/fundraising/Steptember

They are an inclusive and community-orientated organisation that offers coaching and training to all, from children aged four years old to people in their 70s.
