Stay at home and Step At Home for Diabetes UK

Date published: 07 May 2020


Editor,

Diabetes UK has launched the Step At Home 30-minute challenge – a way to stay active during lockdown by stepping around your home for 30 minutes a day.

It involves completing 30 minutes of laps around the kitchen table, sofa, living room or garden – or wherever you choose.

You can split your steps throughout the day, or even dance them to your favourite tune; and you can do it alone, with a virtual buddy or someone you live with.

If you're up for the challenge, we'll support you every step of the way.

We'll be posting regular #StepAtHome tips on our social media channels to get you started, and weekly mini challenges to get your feet moving.

You can do it entirely your way - from taking to your staircase to climb the equivalent of the Empire State Building, to getting the kids involved with a fancy dressed up challenge.

So, grab you trainers, slippers or sliders and join us to #StepAtHome towards a healthier you.

The money you raise will can help provide vital support and advice to people living with and at risk of diabetes and their loved ones during this uncertain time.

The mini challenge runs until June 30, is free to join and there is no minimum sponsorship.

You can sign up on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/251648559356771/?event_time_id=251708829350744
