Walking isn’t the only way to walk 10,000 steps – many forms of exercise will help you reach your goal.

Making every step count

Run by Cerebral Palsy Alliance, the Steptember charity event challenges people to take 10,000 steps a day for 28 days straight in, yes you guessed it, the month of September.

Unlike many other charity challenges, Steptember is done in your own time. Just take 10,000 steps a day whenever you like, wherever you like, and log your steps online. And keeping track of those steps is just as easy with the fantastic new pedometer you’ll get just for signing up.

When you register, you’ll receive a Steptember Kit which includes a 3D pedometer to count your steps, a Steptember Handbook, and exclusive access to the Steptember website.

The challenge officially starts on Monday September 4th so register here and good luck!

What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a physical disability that affects the body’s movement and posture.

It is caused by damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth and, while it is a permanent life-long condition, it generally does not worsen over time.

CP affects people in different ways such as body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture, and balance.
