The Million Step Challenge

Youth Diabetes Action invites friends and supporters to participate in the Million Step Challenge during Blue November. This initiative started by the Backyard Gang directly supports HK children with diabetes.
How to participate – it’s easy!

- Start walking on 1 November and see what you’ve achieved by the 30 November
- Invite your friends and family to sponsor you, and ask them to donate using the envelope in the pack
- Submit your step total to us!
Use the pedometer provided by YDA or you can use your own device such as smartphone app or sports watch. Record your daily steps on the tracking sheet enclosed in your pack. Once the Challenge is complete, please add-up the total.

The Backyard Gang
A place where kids can be kids
The Backyard Gang and Backyard Explorers bring the invaluable gift of outdoor play to childhood. We offer every kid the opportunity to EXPLORE their very own HK Backyard. Whether it is hiking in the trails, building a fire to cook S’mores or making a rope swing at the beach.
