Spring in Your Step Challenge

Get a Spring in Your Step this February!!

Shake off those winter cobwebs and get ready for brighter days ahead with our exciting new challenge.

Show your support for the 64,000 people living with dementia in Ireland and walk or run 64km, 64,000 steps or 64 laps in February. You can even come up with your own ‘64’ based challenge. The choice is yours!

Take part in your own time anywhere across the country, near your home or in your local park. Our only ask is to make sure to take part safely and in line with the latest government advice and restrictions around Covid-19. We can complete this challenge together while staying safely apart!!
