Not only is making time for a walk and a chat with your colleagues is a great way of socialising with others; taking part in the Step Count Challenge is a great opportunity for a bit of workplace fun. Here’s Jane from NHS Ayrshire and Arran on how taking part in the Step Count Challenge gave her team the opportunity to have some fun.

Every week, Step Count Challenge participants will receive details of a new competition to take part in. Our weekly challenges have in the past included photo competitions, favourite walk competitions and walk to work challenges. This Autumn, there will be a competition for your favourite spooky walk, an autumn photo competition and a chance for you to nominate a team mate for the Step Count Champion award – so there will be plenty of opportunity to take part in something a bit different.

There’s now less than three weeks to go until the start of the Step Count Challenge on Monday 30th October – so get your team together and sign up for a fun, active and enjoyable four weeks of walking.
