Steve Marshall, Director of LED-UK Lighting Ltd, has recently completed the 300K in 6-week challenge, organised by Bakerwell Ltd and S.E.A Building Compliance Ltd.  25 local businesses, who are members of Building Sussex Connections, an informal networking group for the property and construction industry, undertook this challenge to raise money for Widowed and Young,  their 2021 charity. They also wanted to stay connected between virtual networking events and improve wellbeing.

Steve started the challenge with gusto and decided to walk every day to reach the target.  He powered through the mileage and in fact completed 300K in just four weeks. He is confident that he will reach 400K in the time allowed.

Steve has been averaging 15,000 steps a day which he is really pleased with and has walked almost 500,000 steps in total!  He has been walking after dinner, which has made him feel better and he plans to continue with his new habit at the end of the challenge. Steve regularly cycles, swims, and keeps fit, and he will now add walking to his range of exercise.
