Step Up now in support of Street Child.
This January, Street Child is calling on supporters of all ages to take part in our biggest mass-participation event to date. We want to collectively walk 121 MILLION steps in January (that’s roughly 60,000 miles). Why 121 million? Because there are 121 million school-aged children around the world who are not in education. That’s not acceptable. Can we count on you to step up and make a difference?
‘Step Up for Street Child’ is designed with everyone in mind. We’re not challenging you to take on a marathon or cycle 100 miles. All we ask is that you count your steps throughout January in aid of our overall goal. You can do this by syncing your Fitbit with your fundraising page, or tracking your steps on your smartphone or step counter and updating manually.
‘Step Up for Street Child’ is a great way to get active in the New Year. Whether you set yourself a daily target of 10,000 steps, use the challenge as motivation for you to head out for a jog after work or just aim to increase your number of steps by an extra 1000 per day - your steps can still count towards the total. Every step counts!
Raising money for Street Child has never been easier - family and friends can sponsor you to hit the target you set for yourself. It’s a great way to keep you motivated to hit your step goal!
Instead of charging a registration fee we ask that you make a donation towards your page when you set it up, which could be as little as £5 or £10, and has the added benefit of kick-starting your fundraising! It’s also a great way to show your support for the crucial work Street Child does.
What’s more, Street Child recently launched a campaign called “Count Me In”. During this campaign, until February 21st, all public donations will be matched by the UK Government up to £2 million This means, if you were to raise £150, Street Child would receive £300, which will allow us to train a teacher in one of our school projects!
Step Up for Street Child is an easy and rewarding way to get active in the New Year, so what do you say, will you step up for Street Child?
