Welcome to the North East Trust for Aphasia pedometer challenge for all abilities.Sign up as a team » Sign up as an individual »
This is our second pedometer challenge after we ran a very successful event in 2015. The aim is to promote getting fitter and healthier, while raising money for NETA and having fun with friends and colleagues. We aim for the challenge to suit people of all abilities.
We ask people to donate £5 to NETA as an entrance fee, and to enter the challenge either on their own, or as a team of up to five people. You set your own challenge and work towards a goal over four weeks. This could be to reach a certain number of steps, to virtually walk from one location to another, or meet an average daily step total. We have provided some links to help you set your challenge here. If you like, you could compete with other members of your family, with colleagues, or rivals from another office.
If you need a pedometer, we can loan you one. We encourage people to use their own or pedometer smartphone apps if they have them.
Anyone! We want to promote health and fitness and spread the word about aphasia as far and wide as we can! Even if you have limited mobility you could wear a pedometer on your upper body. The aim is to move a little or a lot more, according to your ability.
The pedometer challenge starts on 09 May 2016 and lasts for 4 weeks.
We are a small North East Charity based at Newcastle University. We provide support for people with aphasia – communication problems after stroke or brain injury. You can find out more about our work on our website.
