Promote health and happiness

Taking part in our Summer Walkies Challenge is a fantastic way to prioritize your health and that of your canine companion.

By hitting the target of 10,000 steps a day, you’ll be ensuring both you and your furry friend are on track to better overall well-being.

Embrace the outdoors

In a world filled with screens and digital distractions, the Summer Walkies Challenge offers the perfect opportunity to disconnect and immerse yourself in nature. Spending time outdoors has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health, reducing anxiety and enhancing feelings of relaxation and contentment. As you explore new walking routes and scenic paths, you’ll discover the beauty of your surroundings and develop a deeper appreciation for the great outdoors.

This allows you to customize your walking experience to fit your schedule and preferences. The challenge is designed to be adaptable, enabling you to complete the daily steps at your own pace throughout the month.
