And I would walk 500 miles ... for charity

Since the 1st July 2019, Dave Harfield has walked over 500 miles, taking more than a million steps in order to raise £875 (and counting) for Diabetes UK as part of their One million step summer challenge

Having achieved and exceeded this initial goal, he is aiming to complete 1,500,000 steps by walking more than 750 miles, and to raise >£1,000 by the end of this challenge on the 30th of September 2019.
Dave’s statistics are as of 31/08/19:
Taken 1,128,345 steps
Walked 518 miles (833 Km)
Raised £876.18p for Diabetes UK
Lost more than 1 Stone (>6.3 Kgs) in weight


In order to achieve this feat and in addition to normal day-to-day activity, Dave takes time out to walk a 5 mile course around his estate and local business park, which he normally completes in a little over an hour. This he advises, gives him the opportunity to reflect on the day’s events, and issues and help decompress from the stresses of a busy and challenging work schedule as a Safety Auditor for QinetiQ Ltd.
Dave is a Freemason, and currently Treasurer of Beaconsfield Lodge #2849. Other individuals connected with this Lodge participating in the 1 million step challenge are Wendy Harfield widow of Kevin Harfield a recent Master, and Val Jones wife of the Secretary Rick Jones.
