Yep, that’s right, Steptember!
Kit, Peter, Nigel and I formed a team, Step Up Manila to contribute to a great cause and get fitter together. We are putting our feet down for Steptember 2016!
In our quest to increase our fitness levels, develop new healthy habits, have a great time together, we also take on the challenge to raise incredibly important funds to support people living with cerebral palsy.
From Thursday, 1 September we will be taking on the challenge of completing 10,000 steps a day, for the entire month of Steptember to raise vital funds for Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
The average office worker only takes around 3,000 steps per day. Me, I’ve been stepping a bit and have bumped up my personal challenge to 15,000 a day. This will be a challenge but it’s for a very worthy cause.
Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood. One in two people with cerebral palsy are in chronic pain due to the tightening of their muscles. Many will never be able to take a single step without assistance.
If you’re not sure where to start, a donation of $55 could support research actively preventing CP in newborn babies BUT ANY AMOUNT you contribute would make a huge difference to children and adults living with cerebral palsy and of course encourage me to complete my 15,000 steps per day!
You can donate to my fundraising page: (https://event.steptember.org.au/donate/onbehalfof?id=de619857-a34c-491e-943e-310be66ff900).
Many thanks in advance and happy Steptember!
