300k steps challenger Jill Harker - The Harkers/Christian Aid

Meet our challengers from 2021: Bill and Jill Harker

Along with their beagle Keeva, Bill and Jill (pictured here) joined the 300,000 steps challenge in 2021. As part of a team of walkers from churches across Northallerton, they raised thousands of pounds - and contributed towards walking at least four million steps just for that group alone!

Bill and Jill posted regular updates about their daily walks, and achieved fantastic results - raising more than £3,400.

‘The best part was having a definite focus each day and knowing we were doing it to help those not as fortunate as ourselves,' Jill told us.  

Her advice? ‘Just concentrate on one day at a time and that way the total for the challenge won't seem so daunting. Also, if [you] have a step counter to wear all the time, it's amazing how quickly steps will accumulate, on a daily basis, with routine things like shopping.’

Need some motivational music?

We've created a Spotify playlist perfect for getting those steps in.
