LandAid’s Steptober challenge is returning for a fourth year, with registration opening today, Wednesday 23 July.
The industry-wide challenge, powered by headline sponsor Logicor, will see teams of four property professionals from across the sector put their steps to good use to end youth homelessness for LandAid, the property industry charity, for the first two weeks of October.
Registration for this year’s event will opens today, Thursday 29 July.
Registration is £100 per team, with a £50 individual fundraising target, or there is the option to pay the full £300.
LandAid is inviting property professionals to step away from the screen during Steptober. Whilst the world is beginning to open up, many of us still have not returned to the office. Working from home can take its toll, therefore LandAid is encouraging the industry to take time away from the screen, enjoy the fresh air and breathe, all whilst getting their steps up and helping to end youth homelessness.
Last years’ event raised over £105,000 and saw record-breaking number of 848 property professionals take more than 16 million steps, including Chris Cooper from DTZ Investors who won the Individual with the Highest Step Count, taking a total of 705,130 steps. The Team with the Highest Step Count Award was won by reigning champs Alter Domas Coast Busters who took a staggering 1.61million steps together.
Paul Morrish, Chief Executive, LandAid: “Steptober may still look a little different from previous years, but it is set to be bigger and better than ever with our headline sponsor Logicor. Last years’ event saw 848 property professionals stepping to end youth homelessness and walk more than 16million steps over two weeks. This year we are looking forward to seeing those within different sectors of the property industry take part and join our mission to end youth homelessness.”
Michael Slattery, CEO, Logicor: “Logicor is pleased to be the headline sponsor of Steptober again this year and to continue to support LandAid with their mission to end youth homelessness in the UK. Steptober is a great way to encourage health and wellbeing through physical activity while also helping LandAid to deliver essential support and services to young homeless people across various local communities in the UK.”
