20,000 Steps For Trafford Carers Centre
Get active for Trafford Carers Centre! May sees the beginning of National Walking Month so we are asking you to join us in getting active and raising funds for our 20th Birthday. Choose a date in May that you will complete the 20,000 steps, gather some friends and take a long walk in the fresh air. Ask friends/family and colleagues to sponsor you, give the news of your final step count and at the end of the month hand in your sponsors to us.
Did you know that walking at least 10,000 steps a day can improve your health, build stamina and burn approximately 500 calories? Doctors recommend that to live a healthy, active life we should aim to walk around 10,000 steps a day but the average person only manages to complete 3,000 – 4,000.
If you’re not very active, increase your walking distances gradually and if you are concerned about this affecting any existing health conditions, speak to your GP. No one expects 20, 000 steps to occur overnight! Start making small changes e.g. getting off the bus a stop earlier, walk the dog 10 extra minutes a day, etc.
For more information call: 0161 848 2400 or download the sponsorship form here to get involved. Take your first steps to a more active and healthier you!
