If you’re looking for motivation to step up your running this summer, then try the Step It Up Challenge in aid of Neurokinex – the UK’s leading specialist spinal cord injury rehabilitation provider.
There’s nothing quite like a distance challenge to get you out of the door – and knowing your effort is going towards safeguarding life-changing rehab for kids and grown-ups living with a spinal cord injury will feel amazing.
The 31-day challenge in August is aiming to raise £20,000 to safeguard its life-changing Step Up Scheme for newly injured adults and children
The challenge is simple. From August 1st-31st, you can work as an individual or in a team to travel the equivalent distance between one or more Neurokinex sites.
Put another way, that’s:
- 65 miles between Neurokinex Gatwick and Neurokinex Hemel Hempstead
- 130 miles between Neurokinex Bristol and Neurokinex Hemel Hempstead
- 135 miles between Neurokinex Bristol and Neurokinex Gatwick.
You can combine other ways to cover the distance as walking, cycling and swimming all count.
The Step It Up Challenge costs just £18 – including a medal – with all proceeds going to the Neurokinex Step Up Scheme.
Your distance will be automatically tracked through Strava and manual submissions of distance travelled will be accepted too.
