Frequently Asked Questions
How do I track my steps?
There are a couple of ways you can keep track of your steps. Most smart phones will have a step counter or, you might like to look into a smart watch or fitbit. There are also apps you can download that can help you keep track of your steps or distance.
Do I have to do a certain amount of steps each day?
No! That’s what is special about Steps to Freedom, you can pick a challenge that suits you, your goals and your lifestyle. If you are looking for motivation to move more every day, then give yourself a daily or weekly step count goal. If you want to take on a one-off challenge why not do a long-distance walk – like one of these?
I am not very fit/have a physical ailment that limits my movement. Can I still take part?
Absolutely! Steps to Freedom is all about challenging yourself. As Captain Tom Moore showed us, your goal doesn’t have to be big to make a difference.
