Join our #StepUp4OurNHS Fundraising Challenge to climb a national landmark without having to step outside your front door!
The idea was inspired by Pippa Macdonald, who volunteered to climb her staircase at home to the equivalent height of the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. It is 6,114 steps up her stairs!
Update: Pippa has already climbed 'Ben Nevis' and is now attempting to do 'the 3 peaks' before dinner! Amazing - GO PIPPA!!!
Here's Pippa, setting the challenge!
We have chosen 10 national landmarks for you to choose to climb on your stairs at home for Food4Heroes. Perfect for any age or fitness level, you select the level of difficulty to suit your ability, or choose your own local landmark to climb.
You could even split the climb between families across households too, or across sports and social groups or networks; a group together could tackle the intense 40,982 steps of Mount Everest!
It’s really easy to take part:
1. Choose one of our shortlisted landmarks (find them here), or one of your own.
2. Climb the equivalent number of steps in your home (remember you only count the Steps Up!).
3. Donate £4 to Food4Heroes via this page - don't forget to tell us what you climbed, add the landmark in the comments when you donate
4. Share your achievement on social media using #StepUp4OurNHS and challenge 4 of your friends to do the same. Don't forget to tag us!
Your £4 donation will enable us to provide two nutritious, free meals to front line NHS heroes across the UK.
We hope you will join Pippa and get involved with this challenge, inspire others to take part and make a donation.
