Put your foot down for a great cause!
Looking for a way to improve your fitness, develop healthy new habits, have a great time with friends, and raise incredibly important funds to support people with cerebral palsy (CP) in Singapore - all at the same time?
Then look no further, because here it is - Steptember 2019.
Organised by Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS), the Steptember charity project 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 can be done in your own time. Just take 10,000 steps a day (or take part in equivalent exercise), whenever you like, wherever you like, and log your activity online. Show off your participation with your very own Steptember wristband!
Sounds easy, right? Well, perhaps not. But certainly rewarding, inspiring - and most of all, enormously appreciated!
Every dollar you raise during Steptember allows us to provide much-needed services, support, and care for many children and adults living with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities. They have shown more courage and determination in their daily lives than most of us need to in a lifetime.
Thanks to the sponsorship of friends and family, you will raise vital funds to help defray costs of transport, programmes, therapy equipment, and care. All these will help uplift the lives of our clients, whose families face financial hardship and have difficulty meeting the high costs of the care their children need.
But all these are only possible with your support. Each step that you'll take this September will translate into many more steps for those with cerebral palsy, and that's a beautiful thing to do.
How it works
- Register a team of 2 to 4. Get on board early to receive a pedometer, while stocks last!
- Track your daily step count using your smartphone or pedometer, and record your steps on this website.
- Aim for 10,000 steps every day in September. Urge your team members to keep pace too!
- Make every step count (10,000 steps is no easy feat!) Ask friends and family members to sponsor you by making an online donation or you even hold mini fundraisers. See more fundraising ideas here.
You can also run, cycle, swim or even dance your way to glory. There are over 40 different activities you can convert to steps, including activities suitable for people with a disability - anyone is welcome to participate!
