important funds to support people with cerebral palsy and other
disabilities right across Canada , look no further, because here it is - Steptember 2017.

Just take 10,000 steps a day, or equivalent activity, whenever you
like, wherever you like, and log your activity online. And keeping
track of those steps is just as easy if you have your own fitness
tracker or we can also provide you with a Steptember pedometer.
