Grief Encounter is proud to announce its latest fundraising initiative for you to get involved in. This September, we’re taking steps to make a difference, and letting our feet do the talking with the brand new fundraising challenge – Step-tember!

We want you to join us, whether you are back in the office or still working from home, in stepping up for Grief Encounter and pledging to walk 300,000 steps during September. Go it alone or make up a team, and walk together to raise essential funds for us.

How does it work? Get walking… Track your daily steps manually or log them in an app, convert your steps into km and see how far around the world you can travel in one month. Do you think you could walk to Paris in one week? Or maybe you can take a stroll to Berlin in time for ’Septemberfest’?! You could even celebrate your milestones with ‘target parties’. Theme them to the countries you’ve made it to, and put the fun in fundraising.

It’s so easy to set up a JustGiving page, raise money through matched funding or get team sponsorship – our dedicated fundraiser support team can help you with all of these fundraising options. Just drop us a line at

Register and join us in September to see how far we can go together for bereaved children and young people.
