Hip Health Awareness Month

How to get involved with Hip Dysplasia Awareness Month 

There are so many ways you can get involved to raise awareness and support Steps, take a look at our list – there’s something for everyone!

Take part in our Hip Dip swimming Challenge!

Hip Dip is a sponsored swim with a distance to suit all abilities.

Swimming is particularly good for those born with hip conditions as it emphasizes upper body activities while the body weight is supported, thus avoiding any load on the hip joint. 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.

Email us at fundraising@steps-charity.org.uk once you’ve set up your Just Giving page. You can buy Hip Dip swimming caps here.
