The HHCC and Volunteer Team are continuing to showcase the wonderful work of our Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (HDFT) and Harrogate Integrated Facilities (HIF) colleagues and celebrate their success of #TeamHDFT.

We are currently stepping across the HDFT footprint this Spring.  Why not join us for our next  Stepping up for HHCC Challenge this Summer – Can you go the distance?’ which is taking place 1 July 2021 – 30 September 2021

As an organisation, we serve a population of 2,573,066 in our Hospital based Services and for Children, Young People, Adults and Families across our Community Services footprint.

We are challenging our Stepping up for HHCC community to collectively cover this distance in Kilometres this summer.

You can add to this epic target through cycling, walking, jogging, running, swimming, horse riding or any other physical activity covering this distance by signing up for £20.

You can sign up to 1,2,3 months – it’s up to you and take on your challenge anytime between 1 July 2021 – 30 September 2021! 

What’s included:

  • Stepping up for HHCC T-shirt (if you haven’t already got one!)
  • Bespoke Medal
  • Top tips on how to fundraise
  • Exclusive virtual community support groups, Stepping up for HHCC closed Facebook Group and Strava Group

Why you should join our challenge:

  • Health & Wellbeing benefits – boost your fitness and emotional wellbeing
  • Support your local NHS – the NHS has never been more needed, here is a safe and fun way to raise money
  • Increase your knowledge and awareness of HDFT and the population who have access to our services as an organisation and see if we can collectively match that number in kilometres

You may also wish to fundraise for this exciting event via our fundraising platform. We have fundraising guidance which will be shared with you with hints and tips to get your friends, colleagues and family involved in your step challenge.

Step up for HHCC and support your local NHS!


Why not sign up with colleagues, friends or family and form a Team.  Being part of a Team is a great way to keep motivated and have a little healthy rivalry.  Why not see who can complete the most kilometres, who can fundraise the most or meet for socially distanced walks, bike rides or climbs.

Each Team signed up will be entered into our Prize Draw!  

Each Team member will need to sign up individually below.  To form a Team please email:
