Firesprite raise £538 for PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide
Congratulations to our 12 sprite steppers who completed a massive 4,044,198 steps this April to raise money and awareness for PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide!
This challenge was a fantastic way to keep us moving, and for such an incredible cause! 12 sprites committed to 3.6 MILLION steps throughout the month of April, and raced past their goal to hit a whopping 4,044,198, sharing their adventures along the way on the Firesprite social media channels.
Aiming to complete 10,000 daily steps each, they found inventive ways to incorporate extra activity into their everyday routines. From moving apartment on foot, hockey matches, sunrise dog walks and discovering new adventures in their local area, our sprite steppers have made the whole Firesprite team so incredibly proud with this fantastic accomplishment!
The crew raised £538 and are truly grateful for each and every donation, however small. Every penny you donated to this incredible charity helps to save lives.
PAPYRUS is the national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide. Their vision is for a society which speaks openly about suicide and has the resources to help young people who may have suicidal thoughts. PAPYRUS exists to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by shattering the stigma around suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour.
A huge thank you again to our sprites and to everyone who donated! See the adventures this challenge took our sprites on here.
