September 4th to October 1, 2018
All ages and abilities have the opportunity each September to participate in a fun, global, health and wellness initiative to help increase awareness for cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
This is a fantastic opportunity for your family, friends and business to get involved in a team-building, healthy lifestyle-promoting event. Challenge participants form a team of four, and each member tracks their steps each day with a fitness tracker, smartphone app or pedometer to reach their personal goal of 10,000 steps a day!. Each team records their daily step count or amount of time doing any fitness activity, including running, cycling and swimming, and monitor their progress on a personalized Steptember webpage. With dozens of activities that can be translated into “steps,” this challenge welcomes all kinds of movement, even for persons with disabilities.
The unique Steptember webpage tracks participants’ progress up “virtual mountains” and the goal is for your team to reach the peaks by the end of the four weeks. Not only do you have your teammates to motivate you to get active, but you’ll visually see how close you are to the summit!
10,000 Steps a Day?
Did you know the average office worker takes just 3,000 steps a day?
It’s no wonder so many of us aren’t as fit as we’d like to be. Leading health organizations around the world recommend the average healthy adult should take at least 10,000 steps a day.
Every step you take this September will be a step toward a healthier you and a brighter future for children and adults living with cerebral palsy.
Where will Steptember take you?
Taking 10,000 steps a day is no easy feat, so we wanted to make sure your journey reflects the challenge ahead.
Throughout Steptember 2018, you and your team will overcome obstacles and trek to mysterious locations each week on a mission to the summit of a
mountain. How fast can you get to the next checkpoint? And what happens at the top?
You’ll have to step all the way to find out. Fundraise and learn more about cerebral palsy along the way.
How it works
Use a fitness tracker, smartphone app, or pedometer to track your activity throughout the challenge.
You can “step” any way you like! Walk, dance, run, surf, cycle, swim, roll
