Step 2Register your details with Jo Heath.

Step 3 – On Monday 20 January, start your virtual journey. Clock up your everyday steps (choose the stairs over the lift, the walk over the bus, go for that run, skip with the kids!) and see how far you get by Friday 20 March 2020. (One mile is 2,000 steps. The total journey is 627 miles). We will log your progress and will be behind you every step of the way to help keep you motivated.
