Wigan Warriors is proud to support our friends at Wigan and Leigh young Career by donating steps for ‘The Big Step Out 2024‘, organised by charity carers stepping out.

The Club will join a host of teams and celebrities by donating their steps via their nominated charities, including Sir Steve Redgrave who will donate golf steps, Anton Du Bec donating dance steps and the England Women’s cricket team donating their steps from their first ODI against New Zealand.

Wigan Warriors will use GPS technology to record the distance covered by every player in the team during the game against London Broncos on Friday 21 June before posting the number of steps recorded on social media.

The Big Step Out is part of the national community walking festival to celebrate unpaid carers and the people they care for throughout the UK. The festival is taking place between Wednesday 12 June to Tuesday 25 June.

Warriors Head Coach Matt Peet said:  “We’re delighted to support everyone at Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre. It’s a charity that supports some amazing people and, having invited them to come along to watch games in the past, it’s great to be helping them out with this fantastic initiative.

“Good luck to everybody counting steps!”
