What is Take Steps?

Take Steps is a sponsored walking challenge during the month of June.

You can walk wherever you want and whenever you want, whether that’s long-distance hikes, strolls round the park or laps of your garden. You can choose to fundraise for Asthma UK or for the British Lung Foundation. Whichever charity you choose, you’ll be supporting life-saving work.

You can Take Steps by yourself or as part of a team.  Everything is designed so you can form teams virtually, so don’t worry if restrictions mean you can’t be with you team in person – you will be together in spirit!

Join our Facebook Group to meet other participants, share your photos and updates from your walks, and you might even find some new teammates there too!

When can I start walking? 

Take Steps runs from 1st June to the 30th June, but you can start fundraising straightaway.  You can also pay in any last-minute donations up until the 18th July.  You can start your walks anytime in June too, it’s whenever works for you! Once you’ve linked your Strava or Fitbit app, it will begin automatically tracking your distance.

What we do

Asthma UK

Every 10 seconds someone in the UK has a potentially fatal asthma attack. In the UK, three families are devastated by the death of a loved one from asthma every single day. 

We work to stop asthma attacks and, ultimately, cure asthma by funding world leading research and scientists, campaigning for change and supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life threatening asthma attack.
