Are you up for the challenge?

It’s essential that we stay active and connected and foster teamwork across our organisation. That’s why we’re stepping up and challenging you to take 10,000 steps each day during September. With more than 40 activities that will count towards your steps, you can walk, swim, ride, wheel or spin your way through September.

Every 20 hours, an Australian child is born with cerebral palsy resulting from damage to the developing brain. Whether it’s through early intervention, life-changing technology and equipment, or ground-breaking research, by stepping up you can help to improve the lives of children and adults living with cerebral palsy.


Follow these easy steps:

1. Create your team of up to four people, nominate a Team Captain and create a unique team name.

2. The Team Captain then registers your team at which will automatically link your team to University of Melbourne.

3. Here, the Team Captain will need to enter the names and emails of the team members, select ‘Pay for team’, then use the promo code MELBUNI2021 at the checkout for free registration.

4. Once your Team Captain has completed the team registration, each team member will be emailed an invitation link in order to complete their own registration.

We invite you to join the STEPtember Facebook Community Group and STEPtember Linkedin to join the passionate STEPtember community, and we encourage you to check out the FAQS on the STEPtember website if you have any questions.

Happy stepping!
