It’s really easy to track your steps. The simplest way to keep track is by using a step counting app or a pedometer (these are very cheap to buy or order online!). Once you have finished your steps for the day, upload your step total to our form & update your followers.

Smartphone apps

Many phones have free health apps installed on them. Alternatively, you can download a free step counting app. Here are some suggestions:


  • Apple Health

Apple Health will count your total steps per day. This app should already be built into your iPhone or Apple device, so there’s no need to download anything else.

  • Pedometer & Step Counter 

A simple app to count your steps across the day and can be installed for free from the App Store. 


  • Google Fit

Google Fit will count your steps. It is included on some new Android phones, or can be installed from Google Play.

  • Leap Fitness Step Counter

A simple app to count your steps across the day and can be installed for free from Google Play. 

Ensure you review the T&Cs before downloading any app, and ensure you are happy with the app. These are simply recommendations, and not endorsements. 


You could use a basic pedometer to count your steps. These are readily available to buy both  online or in your local sports shop.

You can track your steps using apps, or follow these average number of steps to each mile/kilometre: 

1 mile = 2,000 to 2,500 walking steps 

1 km = 1,250 to 1,550 walking steps

4 to 5 miles = 10,000 steps

You can clock up the steps however it suits you. Whether you’re keeping up your normal routine or trying something new, you can make up the 10k steps your way. 

18th – 24th October (South Africa)

24th -30th October (Qatar)

25th – 31st October (Canada, Germany, Ireland, UK & US)

If the main Charity Week dates don’t work for you, not to worry, you can do the 10k a day steps at a similar time. Just as long as it’s before the banking deadline.

Due to collectively fundraising towards projects across 7 countries, we want to ensure we can get the funds counted and towards the projects. This means we have set a deadline on when to fundraise by, so we can get the funds to those most in need. 

Make sure you’ve done all your fundraising by midnight Friday 12th November.

Yes! We encourage you to complete the steps during Charity Week if possible, but it can be done when most convenient for you. 

What matters is that you set out to take part in Charity Week 2021 and do your part in supporting orphans & children in need globally. Give it your best try, and feel satisfied that you have done your best!
