Steptember 2017

If you are looking for a way to increase your fitness levels, develop new healthy habits, have a great time with friends, and raise incredibly important funds to support people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities right across Canada , look no further, because here it is - Steptember 2017.

Supported by Cerebral Palsy Associations across Canada and internationally, the Steptember charity event challenges people to take 10,000 steps (or the equivalent) a day for 28 days straight during the month of September.

Unlike many other charity challenges, Steptember is done in your own time. 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. 

The Cerebral Palsy Foundation (Saint John) Inc. will be participating in this year's Steptember challenge and we encourage all previous participants to sign up again.
