Walk Your AS Off 2023

Walk Your AS Off is an annual virtual step challenge to help people get active for health, raise awareness about axial SpA, and also fundraise. It’s organised by Walk As One. Each day between 1-31 May, it asks people to record the steps they take and upload them to their team page on the Walk Your AS Off website. There are no minimum or maximum steps, and any activity can count. The National Axial Spondyloarthritis Society (NASS) is encouraging people to take part, and to fundraise for the charity.

May is #NationalWalkingMonth. Why not set yourself a #GAINmomentum challenge to head out for a daily walk? It’s a great way to get fit & raise funds for GAIN #Charity. #GBS #CIDP

GAINmomentum 2023

GBS & CIDP Awareness Month runs from 1-31 May, and coincides with National Walking Month so Gain Charity is asking people to challenge themselves to get outside every day and raise awareness and funds to help other people affected by GBS and CIDP. It has lots of ideas for how to do this on its site.
