Join the Million Steps for Mikeysline Challenge 2024!

For the fifth consecutive year, the teclan team and our friends in the business community (both locally and nationally!) are gearing up to take millions of steps to support Mikeysline. We invite you to lace up your walking shoes and join us in this meaningful initiative!

Why We Started

Back in 2020, the global pandemic forced us indoors, limiting our activities and interactions with nature. Many of us found ourselves exercising less and missing out on the rejuvenating effects of fresh air. Recognising the importance of outdoor activity for mental and physical health, teclan launched an initiative to get people moving again. Through daily walking and running, we rediscovered the joy and benefits of being active. But we didn’t stop there — we decided to turn this positive change into a force for good by supporting a wonderful local charity: Mikeysline.

About Mikeysline

Founded in 2015, Mikeysline was born out of the tragic loss of two young friends, aiming to prevent suicides and offer support to those in need. Founded in memory of Mikey Williamson and Martin Shaw, the charity provides a critical lifeline through its digital text line service, available every evening of the year. This confidential service offers peer support to anyone facing difficulties, no matter how big or small.

At the Hive Centre in Inverness and outreach Hives in Alness, Tain, Nairn, Balintore, Portmahomack, Skye, and Thurso, Mikeysline delivers one-on-one support for both adults and young people. They also extend their reach both online and to schools and workplaces, addressing the growing demand for mental health support. Your participation and donations are vital to helping Mikeysline continue its life-saving work.

The Million Steps Challenge

Here’s how it works: for every 10,000 steps walked, each participating team member pledges to donate £1 to Mikeysline. Our journey began in 2020 with ten teams, and each year more and more people have been taking part. Together, we’ve walked over 100 million steps and raised more than £20,000 for Mikeysline!
