Can you take Nurses' Steps?

What’s the challenge?

  • Walk either 7,000 or 10,000 steps a day in February in support of the nurses at the hospice.
  • All we ask is that you raise at least £70, which could pay for a nurse to make a home visit to one of our families (making up some of their 7,000-10,000 steps!).

Sign up today

And we’ll send you a pair of exclusive St Barnabas shoelaces to help keep you on track! And when you’ve completed your challenge, we will send you a well-deserved medal – to show our appreciation and what a difference you have made!


Print the activity sheets to help all the family have fun and fundraise, plus keep track of your steps and progress throughout the month.

How far will I be walking?


7,000 steps every day in February is the equivalent of walking 98 miles!


10,000 steps a day in February you’ll have walked a total of 140 miles, equivalent to walking from Brighton to Bournemouth!
Information about the challenge

It’s just £12 to register, and we’ll send you some exclusive St Barnabas House shoelaces, and a medal when you have completed your incredible challenge. We’ll also support you to help achieve your goal and fundraising target.

Yes! Your registration fees cover the costs associated with the Nurses Steps challenge, so please raise some sponsorship money for St Barnabas House, to enable us to continue providing care and support to local people who need us and their families. We ask you to try to raise at least £70.

Of course! There is no eligibility criteria to take part. You can set your own daily distance and upload this in different ways:

  • 2000 steps = 1.6km/ 1 mile
  • 7,000 steps = 5.6km/ 3.5 miles
  • 10,000 steps = 7.62km/ 5 miles
