How can I complete 295,000 steps?

Set yourself a stair climb challenge at home

Do an at-home exercise class

Walk, jog or hop laps of your garden

Hold a sports day with your family in the garden

Do a treasure hunt around your home

Have a virtual dance party with your family

More ideas:

  • Multi-task! Step on the spot whilst cooking, ironing or watching TV
  • Don’t forget you can make all of these group activities using video call platforms like Zoom, Facetime or Microsoft Teams
  • Go for a walk once a day. You could set yourself a specific route or destination, or listen to a podcast or audiobook along the way.

    Please remember if you’re going for a walk outdoors, to always follow the government guidelines for social distancing in your area.

Take 295,000 steps, raise funds, save lives

How can I raise £295?

Share your fundraising page and tell everyone why you’re taking part

Share a photo from your walk as a reminder for people to donate

Add your fundraising page link to your email signature

Contact your local press and share your Step Challenge story

Share a fact about ovarian cancer after each walk or each time you hit a steps milestone.

Thank each of your wonderful donors and let them know the difference they’re making

More ideas:

  • Make your page shine. It sounds simple but adding a photo, setting a target and telling your story is proven to significantly increase your fundraising success.
  • Sometimes people don’t want to be the first to donate, so get your fundraising page started by self-donating. Research shows that fundraisers who self-donate raise 54% more.
  • If you raise £10 a day or ask 10 people to each donate £29.50, you’ll reach your target in no time!
  • Encourage friends and family to donate specific amounts, for example: £2.95 is the equivalent of your daily morning coffee, bus journey or a lunchtime meal deal.
  • Let everyone know when you’re close to a milestone and ask them to donate to help you get there, for example: your first £100 or first 100,000 steps.
