Keep Marching! That’s 10,000 steps a day for you and one BIG March for homelessness and hospice charities

The BIG March is the industry-wide 10,000 steps-a-day challenge being embraced by construction professionals across the UK, with one company involving their office in Germany too!

A huge thank you to every individual and company that is already Marching along for your industry charity, CRASH. You are helping provide a home to adults who are homeless, and you are creating a safe and peaceful space for children and adults who need hospice care.

It’s not too late to join the industry’s BIG March, all you need to do is clock up the remaining 155,000 steps until Thursday 31st March and donate or raise sponsorship.

Thank you to everyone who has been motivating fellow Marchers and sharing your photos on social media – It has been wonderful to see so many people from the construction industry come together for The BIG March!

Here are some of our favourites…

Please keep tagging @CRASHCharity in your photos on social media using #theBIGmarch.
