It’s still not too late to set up your own challenge, push yourself to your physical limit and fundraise for charity. Here’s what you can do to get involved…

The Nation’s Billion Steps Challenge

You can step for Sport Relief in the collective challenge to beat a billion steps a day (from 17 to 23 March) whether you’re running, dancing, dog walking or zumba-ing. And don’t worry about keeping count: the Sport Relief app can keep track and also help you set up a donation page, making it easy to get sponsored.

If you’re not sure how to set up a Giving Page, you can see Sport Relief’s guide here.

How to fundraise at your work

Tempted to start a Step Off with your colleagues? Want to see who can beat the boss? All information about how to raise funds at work can be found by downloading a Sport Relief Fundraising pack.

Stuck for ideas? Here are few you can find in the fundraising pack:

  • Get everyone to pay to dress up as their favourite sporting hero
  • Put on a Sport Relief bake sale
  • Host the Sport Relief Quiz (download the questions here).

How to fundraise at your gym

You can download a fundraising pack for your gym here. Can’t think of any fundraising ideas? Why not try…

  • A charity sports match
  • An endurance challenge (reckon you could pedal ALL day in a team relay?)
  • A tag-team treadmill challenge (could your team run an epic distance, like from London to Brighton?)

You can find more ideas here.
