How to get involved with Hip Health Awareness Month – June 2021
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 email@example.com once you’ve set up your Just Giving page and we’ll send you a free Hip Dip swimming cap to wear while completing your challenge.
Plus, while stocks last, everyone who raises over £300 will get free Steps ‘We don’t take walking for granted’ t-shirt!
