It is almost September and Springtime in Australia! When I was looking for a monthly fitness challenge for myself and the #couchpotatotofabfit Facebook Group I came across ‘Steptember’. Perfect! Exercise and raising money for Cerebral Palsy.
The idea of Steptember is to walk 10,000 steps for 28 days straight. That seems like a lot of steps, but it is amazing how much we move during a day. When you sign up they provide a pedometer to keep a check on your steps.
But it isn’t just walking – you can do any form of activity – run, dance, swim, cycle even yoga. To encourage people to move, the organisers have an activity converter on the website. You just put in the time you spent and what activity you were doing and ‘hey presto!’ it calculates the equivalent steps.
Steptember is available in many countries so most people can take part. You just need to get a team together and register online. http://www.steptember.org.au/about-us/
I have a few from the #couchpotatotofabfit group joining me which will keep me ‘honest’ and it is a great way to motivate each other for a worthy cause.
What is Cerebral Palsy?
the Cerebral Palsy Alliance describes Cerebral Palsy as “a physical disability that affects movement and posture”. 1 in 500 Australian babies are diagnosed with cerebral palsy, is the most common disability in childhood and there is no cure.
