Staff across Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) are stepping up to the Steptember challenge once again.

Steptember is an international campaign that helps raise money for those living with cerebral palsy. The initiative kicked off today.

The challenge sees participants taking 10,000 steps per day for 28 days straight.

Seventy staff teams across WSLHD have already dusted off their sandshoes, raising $3721 for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance before the event has even started.

Staff are hoping to be beat last year’s fundraising total of $44,442.

Currently, 34,000 Australians are living with cerebral palsy, with one child every 15 hours being born with the disease.

Steptember is the perfect opportunity to get out from behind your desk and make a positive change – with the added benefit of helping a good cause.

Run, walk, cycle, play soccer or do yoga – it all counts towards your Steptember step challenge.
