Why Join us this STEPtember?
Cerebral Palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood. It’s caused by damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth, directly affecting a person’s movement and posture for life.
STEPtember is Australia’s leading health and wellness fundraising event. Walk, swim, ride, wheel or spin your way to 10,000 steps per day for 30 days in a fun, safe and virtual environment – all while making a real difference to the lives of children and adults with Cerebral Palsy. When you sign up for STEPtember, you’ll be raising funds for vital equipment, research, therapy and services for people living with cerebral palsy.
For our Melbourne members, we have a bunch of activities you can easily complete at home to boost your step count safely!
How It Works
- As a participant, you can join a team or register as an individual. If you are the Team Captain, register online and invite up to 3 colleagues to join. (if you have registered separately and need our help to ensure you’re in a team please email your community team)
- Track your steps using any device like a smartphone or smartwatch and sync with the STEPtember app.
- Make sure you record your steps and activity on the STEPtember platform or app for 30 consecutive days.
- Goal: Take 10,000 steps per day, move any way you like (over 40 activities count towards steps). We’ll share more information about stepping conversions once you’ve registered!
- Fundraise with your friends, family, and colleagues online. Check out STEPtember’s fundraising tips here.
