Walk Your Socks Off!

This May, walk 100,000 steps and raise money to support our life-changing services.

Important notice:

Due to current circumstances please consult government guidance around social distancing and isolation before planning your walking activities. Always consider the safety of yourself and others. 


This May we challenge you to walk 100,000 steps to help support those living with sight loss. 

Raise over £100 and we’ll replace those worn-out socks with an awesome Guide Dogs pair. 

Signing up couldn’t be easier. Just select your chosen week in May and get ready to walk. You don’t have to do all 100,000 steps on your own – sign up as a group and do it as a family, household or virtual group. And if 100,000 is too much especially if you are isolating at home, then just challenge yourself to do as many as you can.

Just wanted to say how much fun I've had with my girls completing the #WalkYourSocksOff2019 challenge. We've walked in rain and sunshine (plenty of that, thankfully). It's been great for my daughter to use it as a chance to practice her long white cane skills too.

£140 could buy a Starter Kit for a new guide dog owner, containing everything they need to start a life with their new guide dog. This includes the iconic white guide dog harness.

Did you know?

Depending on your stride length and walking pace 100,000 steps is around 54 miles or 70km – that’s just under two marathons, a quarter of the Thames Path or half of Hadrian’s wall.

But don’t let this hold you back, 100,000 steps can be shared amongst friends and family (virtually of course) or build as many as you can into your daily routine – in the garden, up and down the stairs and with as many workouts as your time and energy allow! We’ll be with you every step of the way providing you with our top tips to rack up those steps.
