This year Independence Homes are getting involved with 2018 Sport Relief. For Move More March, part of the IH Wellbeing Challenge, we have been encouraging all the people working and living in our supported living and residential properties to increase their level of physical activity and exercise.
Sport Relief will be airing on BBC One next Friday, March 23rd, and lots of famous names from entertainment and sports are taking part in challenges to help raise lots of money for charities supported in the UK and abroad.
IH will be taking part in the collective challenge to beat a billion steps a day which will take place from 17 to 23 March. We will be doing a mini-challenge of ‘Move a Mile’ as part of our special sports event at the FOCUS session in Wallington. There will be lots of other fundraising events around the other properties in London and Surrey.

The national step tracker will keep count of everyone’s steps towards the nation’s billion. It will also convert steps for wheelchair users.
