The 206 Challenge
Walking is great for everybody's bones, but especially for people with osteoporosis, so we’re asking everyone to lace up their boots and walk 206 miles - one for every precious bone in the body - to raise awareness and funds for the National Osteoporosis Society. We’re calling it The 206 Challenge!
How you meet the 206 target is up to you. You could take on twenty 10.3 mile walks over the summer or get together with friends and family and split the target between all of you, or you could make some simple lifestyle changes like walking into town rather than getting the bus or getting off a stop early on your way to work, and see those miles add up.
If 206 miles sounds too much, then why not do 20.6 or 2.06 miles? Every step counts and every pound you raise will help us help more people with fragile bones.
Apart from decent footwear, a bottle of water and some waterproof clothing if you’re going off the beaten track, there’s very little you need to get going. Just make sure that you’re comfy and safe when you're out exploring the world!
You’re free to set your own fundraising target, but as a starting point why not aim for £1 for every mile!
Below, you'll find loads of useful tools and tips to help you make the most out of your fundraising and help you hit your target.

It was a great team effort walking up Mount Snowdon and an exhilarating experience. Walking is such a fun and sociable activity, and it’s free!
