We only recently discovered 'World Walking Day', organised each year by The Association for International Sport for All (TAFISA) and which, by a remarkable coincidence, is held annually on 1st October, our charity's birthday.
It was too good a chance to pass up so we took part in World Walking Day 2023, posting messages on TAFISA's WhatsApp group and on Twitter. From our World Walking database we were able to see that 2,467 people added steps to their virtual walks on our online platform on World Walking Day. The total distance added was 30,924 miles, equivalent to walking 1.2 times round the world.
Now that we know of this terrific annual event, we'll try and come up with something for next year.
