Climbing Stair Mountain! - East Cheshire Hospice

Climbing Stair Mountain!

Don’t forget to stop at the summit to admire the view!

Why not set yourself a goal to match the equivalent steps that would be required to summit some of the most famous mountains…

Ben Nevis… 1344 metres. 8736 steps to the top!

Snowden… 1085 metres. 7052 steps to the top!

Scarfell Pike… 978 metres. 6357 steps to the top!

Double all of them to come back down!


To keep you motivated why not do your steps standing in place, marching on the spot, while watching one of the many ‘virtual climbs’ of famous mountains, such as Everest Virtual Reality or watch inspiring mountain movies. Use a pedometer app to keep track of your progress.


How do I get started?

Start by setting up your Just Giving page here and follow the simple step-by-step process to creating your fundraising page. Make sure to fill in the details about your virtual challenge, set yourself a fundraising target, share your page with friends and family on social media, email, WhatsApp, text… And away you go!


Hike your way to the top whilst raising those vital funds for East Cheshire Hospice.


It costs £7,500 to keep the Hospice running for 1 day, so every penny that you can raise is important. You may never know exactly how your support will help but you can be assured that the impact your support will have on local families who can benefit from the Hospice services at one of the most difficult and emotional times will be huge and ever so appreciated.
