A step for every child with a life-limiting condition in the UK.

17-23 June 2024 

With every step, wheel, jump, or even dance, you can pave the way to make a difference for the 99,000 children in the UK living with a life-limiting condition.

In the UK, there are 54 children's hospices dedicated to caring for seriously ill children and their families. However, these hospices face a funding shortfall and rely heavily on donations to fund their lifeline care. By taking on the challenge of completing 99,000 steps in a week, you can join us in our mission to be there for children's hospices. Your support will help ensure that these vital services remain accessible for families today, tomorrow, and in the future.

Every step counts for families like Oscar's

Every step and every penny raised will help children like Oscar, and the hospices up and down the country who care for them.

Oscar was born with quadriplegia cerebral palsy, a four-limb movement disorder. In 2019, as Oscar’s condition declined and his needs began to change, he was referred to Little Havens Children's Hospice.     

At Little Havens there is everything Oscar loves around him; the respite can be a fun time for Oscar on his good days or it can be a restful stay with round-the-clock care. 

Mum, Adelaide, said “It’s much more to us than respite, they help to get the best out of each day for Oscar. If he’s having a good day and really smiley and happy, they go outside because they know that’s something he loves and is important to him. They want to make Oscar happy, and that’s what Little Havens does for us as a family; nothing is impossible.”   

Children's hospices are always there for families like Oscar's when they need them, no matter what. Complete the 99,000 Steps Challenge and show your support for their extraordinary care.

One small step, one huge difference.
