Who’s Joining me this Steptember?


How many steps do you think you did today?

1000? 3000? One-million?

For most office workers it’s only around 3,000.
Why not aim higher and put those steps to good use?

Steptember is a fun way to become more active and raise much needed funds for people with cerebral palsy and their families.

Given how terrible the City2Surf was, I think that upping my steps and activity more generally will help my poor legs and body remember what it’s like to MOVE a lot more regularly! And if I’m accountable to my team of four people, then that’s even more encouragement!

What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral Palsy is a physical disability that affects movement and posture.

Cerebral palsy (CP) is an umbrella term that refers to a group of disorders affecting a person’s ability to move. It is a permanent life-long condition, but generally does not worsen over time. It is due to damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth.

Cerebral palsy affects people in different ways and can affect body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and balance.

Did you know, Cerebral Palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood?
