Boy walks a million steps for charity

He's raising funds for YoungMinds UK

A boy from Exeter has walked one million steps to raise awareness of mental health.

10-year-old Jake Beveridge, who suffers from anxiety and OCD, started walking 10 miles a day from the start of March for Young Minds Trust charity - which helps youngsters with their wellbeing and mental state. 

He’s smashed his original target and hopes his epic venture inspires others to challenge themselves.

His mum Kirsty says "He still wears his Fitbit each day achieving 20,000 daily steps or more, it seems to have become an ongoing challenge!"
