Registrations for STEPtember are now open for steppers across the district.
STEPtember is a month long fundraising event conducted by the Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA) which aims to support a wide range of initiatives involving those living with cerebral palsy.
Steppers can take part in STEPtember individually or as part of a team, with the aim of hitting a daily goal of steps to encourage donations.
NSLHD’s top individual fundraiser for 2021 was Sarah Doran, who works as an education support officer, Sydney Clinical Skills & Simulation Centre.
Sarah said her motivation for taking part was seeing her friends and their children receive support from the CPA.
“I have two close friends who have children with cerebral palsy,” she said.
“The ongoing support and funding the CPA provide the children and their families is incredible.”
Neil Hepple is a senior organisational development partner on the NSLHD Violence Prevention and Management Training team and was a member of the top stepping team in the district last year, ‘Stayin’ Alive’.
