Welcome to Step Up 4 Soma Leo, The Pound Gates Lockdown Steps Challenge
With a new lockdown in place across the country, it’s more vital than ever that we help our staff look after their physical and mental health. 60 of our staff are taking part in the Challenge to exercise throughout January. We’re keeping it simple; each person has pledged how many steps they will take and they are free to achieve them in the way that suits them best. That could be working out to exercise videos, running around after children while home-schooling, and/or taking advantage of the exercise window to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.
The personal pledges made by the 60 participants add up to an impressive 11 million steps!
Not only are we keeping fit throughout January, we are also raising funds for the charity. You can find out more about the challenges facing us as we re-open the school after Kenya's lockdown and what's needed to adapt to government's guidelines in the video below.
