Steptacular!

Steptacular is over again for another year! Please email charity@cpft.nhs.uk if you would like to be kept in touch about when Steptacular will be back for 2019.

Head to Toe's sponsored step challenge is back to get you moving for a fantastic cause. Improve your physical and mental health whilst raising money to help do the same for patients, service users, families, carers and NHS staff across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

What is Steptacular?

We are challenging you to reach 5,000, 10,000 or 20,000 steps every day in September to raise money to support the health and well-being of the amazing NHS staff at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust. These wonderful people help to provide the best possible care and treatment for people of all ages with mental health and long-term physical health challenges across our communities. Your stepping will help them continue to do this and make that care even better!

Don't fancy stepping alone? Teams of five friends, family members or colleagues can take on our two million steps challenge together. This is one million steps more than last year - are you up for an even bigger challenge in 2018?

Don't fancy just walking? Not a problem. Tackle our challenges "off piste" and then how you get your steps in is up to you - walking, running, swimming, dancing, skipping...the choice is yours. Just convert the distance into steps using our conversion.

We've listened to your feedback from last year, so this year we are asking you to use your own step tracking devices - e.g. FitBits - to keep a record of your steps. Don't have one? Don't worry, you can use a stepping app on your phone - have a look here for details. 

We like to encourage a little healthy competition here at Head to Toe so don't stop there, we want to see how far you can go and really smash our step challenges! This year we'll have a leaderboard for each challenge with regular steppers and those going "off piste" listed separately. See how you or your team compete against other steppers each week by checking our online leaderboards - Who will be our best stepper? Will your team be the first to two million steps in your company? How far pass two million steps can you go when you work as a team? Which organisation has the best "steppers" in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough?

Registration is just £5 per person and £25 per team (max. five members per team).
