You'll get fitter, sleep better and feel great.

Know someone stepping?

Make every step count. By sponsoring a friend, family member or colleague who is participating in Steptember you will be making an enormous difference to the lives of New Zealanders living with cerebral palsy. Not to mention the difference you will make to your friend who is doing all the hard work. Did you know the average office worker only does 3,000 steps per day?
