How to log your steps

How to log your steps for the challenge

You can log your steps in the following ways:

1. Manually

This is a great option if you’re using a pedometer or a different method of tracking your distances.

Follow these steps:

  • Login to your fundraising page
  • Go to ‘My Dashboard’ and then ‘My Fitness Activity’
  • Scroll down to ‘Add Activity’
  • Enter the 'Date' and 'Steps' 
  • Hit ‘Save Changes’

Your steps / kms will be added to your fundraising page to track your progress throughout the month.

2. Fitness App

If you track your workouts with Fitbit, MapMyFitness or Strava your distances will automatically add to your tally.

Follow these steps:

  • Download the FitbitStrava or MapMyFitness app and set up your account
  • Login to your fundraising page
  • Go to ‘My Dashboard’ then ‘My Fitness Activity’
  • Go to ‘Connect your preferred Fitness app’
  • Click your chosen app
  • Follow the prompts to connect your account

Then, once you’ve connected your app and start your next workout.

  • Select ‘start your workout’ in the app (on your phone). Once you end your workout, save your workoutand then your activity will be published and displayed on your fundraising page the following day.

If you have synced your app already but it is not working, please log in and re-connect it.

Here is some important information regarding the apps:

When using Fitbit, you must ‘start’ an activity and ‘SAVE’ it or your daily steps will not automatically add to your page. If you are having issues, try syncing through BOTH your Fitbit and the Fitbit app on your smartphone.

When using MapMyFitness, you must ‘start’ your workout, ‘stop’ your workout and then ‘SAVE’ your workout.

Your tally will be updated each day (with the previous day’s distances).
