There’s still time to sign up for a month-long fundraising effort in aid of the Police Treatment Centres (PTC).
The PTC is launching its Big Step Challenge to get people moving and to raise much-needed funds – and Derbyshire Police Federation chair Tony Wetton is encouraging members to take part.
Tony said: “The Police Treatment Centres does a fantastic job in supporting serving and retired officers following illness or injury – including colleagues of ours in Derbyshire.
“It needs to raise vital funds to carry out its work and taking part in the Big Step Challenge is a great way to help.
“You’ll not only be raising money for a brilliant cause but you could also improve your fitness and wellbeing along the way.”
The challenge runs from 15 May to 14 June. You can take part on your own or as part of a team.
Complete the Gentle Stepper, which is 250,000 steps, the Middle Stepper, 500,000 steps, or the Top Stepper’s target of 750,000 steps.
Entry is free but those who take part are asked to raise a minimum of £30 for the PTC, and the top three fundraisers will win a Fitbit Inspire 3.
Each year it costs £6.5 million to run the Police Treatment Centres, and fundraising makes up at least 10 per cent of the figure.
Sign up to the Big Step Challenge now.
