Adrian on his charity walk for Action for Elders

Going that Extra Mile

10,000 steps a day for 10 days.

Adrian Scott, our Digital Support Specialist has worked solidly during lockdown and beyond to help Action For Elders participants get connected so they can stay in touch with family and friends.

There has been a huge demand for Adrian’s services, so he set himself a challenge to walk more than 50 miles over ten days to raise money, to help us reach more older people to tackle loneliness and isolation in local communities.

Going The Extra Mile

On Friday 18th February, Adrian began walking 10,000 steps per day for ten days to raise money to help older people. Adrian has struggled with chronic back pain and walked through wind, rain and storms to make sure he covered at least 10,000 steps every day. Adrian finished the challenge on Sunday 27th February.

124,326 Steps

Adrian exceeded his goal, completing a total of 124,326 steps over 10 days, travelling through North, South and West Wales. That’s 50.44 miles on foot. Adrian has already reached his donations target on GoFund Me and hopes to add much more to this total over the coming weeks.

Our Ten Year Anniversary

Adrian’s challenge embodies everything we stand for at Action For Elders. He showed that if you have the willpower, you will succeed and triumph over adversity. His success kicks off our Ten Year Anniversary campaign: a year-long celebration which seeks to inspire and show what people have achieved with us over the past decade.

A Hero’s Welcome

On Monday 28th February, Adrian received a hero’s welcome at our Balanced Lives exercise and social session at Vivian Hall, Blackpill, Swansea. This new regular session is just one of a host of new programmes made possible by the Social Care Winter Pressures campaign from Welsh Government.

Our Busiest Year Ever

2022 is set to be our busiest year yet with a wealth of new programmes, special events and social initiatives for people in the older community: See our events diary for more information.
