Our goal is to recruit at least 100 fundraisers to each take 10,000 steps per day for 21 days, which will see us reach our target of 21 million steps in 21 days.  

StepUp! #21YourWay

If a step challenge is not for you, that is ok. Choose your own challenge and do this 21 times during October. StepUP! #21YourWay.
