SWIT Big Step Challenge 2021
Join us for ‘The Big Step Challenge 2021’.
In June 2021, take a step each day for a person with aphasia in the UK.
The Big Step Challenge is about raising awareness of aphasia and raising much needed funds for Speak With IT.
For this challenge, we want people to take 12,000 steps a day (approximately 4K) throughout the month of June. This will be one step for every person with aphasia in the UK.
There are more than 350,000 people in the UK who have aphasia yet most people you meet will have never heard of the term ‘aphasia.’.
We want you to take photos of yourself taking the steps so that we can say thank you and flood social media with the term ‘aphasia.’
We are hoping to raise £3000. Successful entrants will receive a Big Step Challenge medal.
Participants who raise £200 will receive a Big Step Challenge medal
