How long is the Future Steps Challenge?

This is a four-week challenge throughout February 2020. You must achieve a minimum of 10,000 steps per day. You can take part individually or as part of a team - teams must have between 2 and 6 members.

How much do we need to raise? How will it be spent?

Individuals will need to raise £100 and teams must raise at least £250 collectively. The funds raise will go directly to support young people across the UK, who are in need of vital help to get back into education, find employment or gain further training.

How do we track our steps?

All teams are responsible for tracking and collating their steps. The Future Steps App can be used to keep track of your steps (compatible with iOS and Android or FitBit). There will also be an option to add your steps manually.

I participate in other physical activities – can these be counted towards my steps?

Yes – you can convert some physical activities into steps to count towards your overall goal. These include running, cycling or swimming. Use the converter within the app if you wish to add one of these popular activities. Please note, not every physical activity can be converted to steps and are, for now, limited to the activities stated above.

What happens if I am ill in February?

If someone is ill or cannot take part, email futuresteps@princes-trust.org.uk and we will submit a daily average of steps for up to three days. However if a member misses more than three days, their average cannot be used and the total steps for the fourth day (and further missed days) will be zero.

How do I set up a fundraising page? 

The Future Steps App will prompt the fundraising page registration. Please note, if you are part of a team, the Team Captains are responsible for setting up the fundraising page. We will be in touch with hints, tips and tricks to help you maximise your fundraising!
