Steptember is coming fast – and 25 teams from WSLHD have already signed up.
Groups from community health, Cumberland, Westmead, Blacktown and Mount Druitt hospitals and corporate communications are all preparing to take 10,000 steps a day during September.
And they’ve come up with some cracking names, Bootylicious, 4 Westy Walkers, Pussee Parade, Cumberland Katz, Tooth Troopers and The Pharmtrackers among them!
There’s still time to sign up to join Steptember.
All you need to do is organise yourselves into teams of four. Each team’s ‘captain’ then visits the Steptember website and signs up.
Remember to register under organisation: NSW Health – Western Sydney Local Health District, and use the free code: WSLHD2017 so you won’t have to pay the $25 registration fee.
Many people with cerebral palsy cannot take a single step unassisted, so don’t take your ability to move for granted.
When you start moving more, you’ll feel better, sleep better and be involved in a great event. You’ll also be helping out amazing kids who live with cerebral palsy.
They need enormous support to get to the point where they can do things most of us take for granted. Much of that support is made possible by the people who participated in Steptember in the past.
Steptember has previously sold out – make sure you are in on the fun.
Steptember is part of the WSLHD Employee Wellbeing program, which has already seen the launch of Fitness Passport and the inaugural WSLHD Wellbeing Festival.
