THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ACTIVE
To promote regular physical activity Fassifern Office participated in Steptember a fundraiser for Cerebral Palsy. 16 participants committed to walking 10,000 steps a day each for the month of September. The activity was tracked by wearing pedometers and recording their activity. With most people spending their working days in an office using a computer this was a great initiative to remind people to be more physically active.
To help raise funds there was a well supported 'morning tea’. Everyone needed to wear their sneakers/joggers to work and make a donation and shared in everyone’s home cooking.
During the month participants accumulated 4.3 million steps and raised $2,469.45 for Cerebral Palsy.
Participants embraced the challenge and many new active habits were formed.
