Quick quiz: how many steps will be taken by WSLHD Steptember steppers over the 28 days from Monday, 4 September?
Two hundred thousand? Half a million? Fifteen million?
If everyone who has signed up to raise money for people with cerebral palsy takes 10,000 steps a day for 28 days, they will take a massive 71,960,000 steps in September!
A total of 257 WSLHD employees have signed up for Steptember 2017. They include the Pussee Parade team from Corporate Communications, the Auburn Ambulators, and the Code Blue team from Mount Druitt.
Ladies Who Lunge is among the Westmead Hospital teams, while Team Sweet Soles is one of a strong contingent from Blacktown.
You can still join them. Just organise a team of four and nominate a team captain. Your captain then heads to the registration page and does the rest.
Registration normally costs $25 per person – but we’ve negotiated free participation for all WSLHD employees, so it won’t cost you a cent.
Ask your family and friends to sponsor you for your efforts. All money raised goes towards helping children and adults living with cerebral palsy – many of whom will never be able to take a single step without assistance.
Make sure you register under our organisation: NSW Health – Western Sydney Local Health District and enter the free code: WSLHD2017 so that your rego costs are covered.
