30 billion steps and counting
The Step Count Challenge was launched by Scottish walking charity Paths for All in 2011. Since then we have had over 69,000 participations in the challenge and logged more than 30 billion steps and counting.
We champion everyday walking in and around the workplace for a happier, healthier, greener Scotland.
We work with employers of all sizes and from every sector across Scotland. From commuting to work on foot, to escaping the desk for a lunchtime walk, or going for an active meeting, the Step Count Challenge gives staff the opportunity, support and motivation to get active.
Here’s a short interview with Stephen Whiston, our 2021 Step Count Champion, talking about his experience of the Step Count Challenge and the benefits it had for his colleagues and workplace:
"Had a lot of fun, competing against other teams in our workplace"
"It was great for team building at work and getting to know your workmates while out for lunchtime walks"
"It helped me to de-stress after having a hectic day at work and home"
