A Peterborough charity is encouraging people to enjoy some fresh air and get ready for the festive season by stepping into Christmas!
Kidney Research UK has launched a Christmas fundraiser to encourage people to get fit, get out the house and raise money for vital research into kidney disease by walking or running 12,000 steps a day for 12 days.
Marc Shaw, head of community and events at Kidney Research UK, said:
“This year has been hard for everyone, and we’re grateful for supporters for their fantastic commitment to helping us fight to end kidney disease.
“Step into Christmas is our new campaign where we’re asking everyone to complete 12,000 steps a day for 12 days. A great way to make loads of room for Christmas indulgence!
“In these difficult times we also want to help people safely link up with friends and family to have some fun, so we have created a ready to use Christmas quiz, ideal for Zoom parties.
“Anyone anywhere can join in. By lacing up your trainers, wearing your seasonal sweater or being the official Christmas quiz master and raising funds for Kidney Research UK, you’re helping end kidney disease.”
Three million people in the UK have kidney disease but only one million will be aware. Treatments can be gruelling and currently, there is no cure.
