From running to skydiving, hiking and swimming we have a challenge for everyone. Join Team Steps to help us raise funds to show the whole world that we don’t take walking for granted!
1000 foot challenge

1000 Foot Challenge 

We invite you and your family to pledge to walk, run, cycle, scoot, climb or even row a boat for 1000 feet to support Clubfoot Awareness Month this June.

Hip Dip Anytime! 

Hip Dip is a sponsored swim with a distance to suit all abilities. You can choose whether to swim 400m, 1.5k, 2.5k, 5k or triple 5k as an individual, or 1.5k or 5k as part of a team – you decide! Then get people to sponsor you!  


The Awareness Campaign for Healthy Hips runs in March but you can decide to take up this challenge at anytime during the year!

Every year, we have our own places in the London Marathon, the Great North Run, the Great Scottish Run and the Great South Run.  They offer the chance to compete in some of the UK’s landmark athletic events, in return for raising a minimum sponsorship amount for Steps.

If you’re interested in applying for another run, then please email

If you have your own place in a major run, then we’d love to talk to you about how we can support you, if you choose to use the event to raise funds for Steps.

London Marathon

Every year Steps has a very limited number of guaranteed places for the London Marathon – we’d love you to run for us! To find out more, including details on the minimum fundraising requirement, download the Steps Marathon form, fill it out and send it back to us to register your interest.  Places do go very quickly so be sure to get in touch as soon as possible.

Great North Run
Great North Run

The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world, taking place annually in North East England each September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields crossing the iconic Tyne Bridge before continuing their journey to the beautiful coast of South Tyneside.

Download the application form here, email it back to us and we will confirm if we are able to offer you a place for this iconic event.

Why not Sky Dive for Steps!

If you’re brave enough to skydive why not find a company near to you and independently sign-up for a challenge of a lifetime?

There is no minimum sponsorship required for Steps – please consult with the company you sign up with regarding all costs and how best to fundraise.  If you do want to fundraise directly for Steps, please inform us first, before signing up, as unfortunately we cannot be responsible for the cost of your jump.

Other Challenges

Every year, numerous charity fundraising challenge events are organised in this country and overseas.  These include:

  • Cycle rides
  • Mountain climbs
  • Triathlons
  • Long-distance treks
  • Swimathons

If you’d like to find out more about these and how you can challenge yourself and raise money for Steps at the same time, please just contact us.  We’d love to help you help us!
