March a Million

March a Million

Step up to our March a Million challenge!

Complete 1 million steps starting the 1st March for local cancer patients. Walk, run, dance or push them. Split the steps between a group of friends, or complete the million solo. Do it in the garden, the park or at home. Whichever way you choose to do it*,  you need to complete the challenge before the 31st May.


Let’s break it down. Going solo that’s:

🚶‍♂️ 10,000 steps each day for 100 days = 500 miles  = More than 18 full marathons 💪

or for a group of four friends or colleagues that’s: 

🏃🏿‍♀️  10,000 steps a day for 25 days = 200 km = Just shy of 5 marathons each 🙌


Are you game for the challenge? 

Track your steps on your mobile phone, smart watch, Strava, a pedometer or simply write them down! If you’re taking part in a group, why not create a group chat and post your daily step count to get a little competition going?

  • Why take part? 

    Now more than ever Cancer Focus NI needs your support. Help us continue to deliver vital services to cancer patients and their families across Northern Ireland during these uncertain times.

    Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on Cancer Focus NI. It has paused many of our services , postponed most of our fundraising events and closed our 13 charity shops. As 90% of our income comes from fundraising, our funds are at a seriously low level- that’s why we need you!
