Power Walk with a Pal

Join our Power Walk with a Pal challenge - aim for 10,000 steps a day for 30 days, between February and March. Let's power through these challenging times together!

Power Walk with a Pal encourages you to walk outdoors which is proven to positively impact health and wellbeing. Grab a pal…furry friends count, to join you for some walks, reaping the benefits of staying connected with loved ones.
 

During the Covid 19 pandemic, enquiries to our Advice Line have more than doubled as many autistic people and their  families continue to struggle with their mental health and wellbeing -  a listening ear is needed now more than ever.

Our top tips...

 
Wear comfy shoes and weather appropriate clothing

 
Listen to music/a podcast/chat with a friend to take your mind off the effort

 
Use a device like a Fitbit or mobile app such as Strava or Active 10 to track how far and how fast you have walked. Most smart phones also have a pedometer as standard so you may not need a seperate device to count your steps.
