March 4 CENS
Walk 1 million steps throughout the month of March and help put an end to homelessness

Gather your friends, family and colleagues and step up for CENS’s March walking challenge. You will be raising vital funds to support homeless people and helping them take their first steps forward towards secure, safe, independent living.

You can take part as a team, or if you are super-fit, go it alone! All you have to do is take 1 million steps throughout March. That’s just over 32,000 steps each day! Or only 16,000 if you take part as a pair and just over 10,000 in a team of 3.

You might want to walk, you may fancy a bit of running, or maybe you’ll take to a treadmill. However you do it, it all counts.

Here's how it works

Step 1

Choose your team and give it a name.

Remember the bigger the team, the fewer the steps each of you needs to take.

Step 2

Register your team.

Registration fee is £25 per team member/ticket. You will receive a free March 4 CENS vest each and a welcome pack*. As the purchaser you will be the team leader and will need to register all your team mates, so have their email addresses ready?

Step 3

Get fundraising.

This is optional, but it all helps raise funds to help the homeless. You can sign up for JustGiving by clicking on the logo or you can download our sponsorship form. You can also set up a fundraiser on Facebook.

Step 4

Join our Facebook Group and start stepping.

Search for March 4 CENS on Facebook to start sharing your experiences, photos, inspiration and progress with other steppers.

Last year we raised much-needed funds for CENS with the first ever March 4 CENS and now we are inviting you to join us. What will you call your team? Need some inspiration? A few of last year’s team names were Captain CENSible, The Blister Sisters, Stepping Crewe and Cirque de Sore Legs.
