We challenge you to complete that many steps each day – reaching your total target of 210,000 steps in June.
Date: 1 June – 30 June
Location: A walking challenge wherever it works for you
To go the extra mile, you can also join us on Sunday 3 July to Hit the Streets one last time in Cardiff, Swansea or Wrexham – meet other Hit the Street-ers, The Wallich’s support staff and celebrate your amazing achievement with free coffee and cake.
Minimum sponsorship target: £100
Hit The Streets is a virtual fundraising event.
Walk, run, jog, HIIT or dance your way throughout the month while tracking your steps. This is your challenge, your choice.
So what are you waiting for?

Last year, we supported a more than 7,000 people experiencing homelessness across Wales.
From offering a roof over someone’s head to upskilling for the future, we respond to anyone who needs us.
The pandemic, the current cost of living crisis and overall uncertainty has resulted in an increased demand for our services.
The mental toll of homelessness and the thought of losing your home is often invisible but very real.
When asked, almost 70% of The Wallich service users have reported a mental health challenge directly linked to their homelessness experiences.
Supporting us means you help us provide services like our Reflections Network. We connect our service users with a trauma informed counsellor within 28 days.
Not only do our counsellors help individuals in crisis, but they work on the root cause, helping to reduce repeat instances of homelessness.
Fitness and getting outside can have a positive impact on our mental and physical health.
This summer, we want to encourage people to get moving – for their own benefit and for people experiencing homelessness in Wales.
That’s why we need you to hit the streets.
Take a long stroll around your local park every day or don your Wallich socks for a quick half hour power walk.
Get your body moving as the summer hits.
You could also use the opportunity to reconnect with friends and family focus on your wellbeing – all whilst support those experiencing homelessness across Wales.
