    10,000 Steps a Day. 28 Days. 1 Goal.

    How many steps did you take today?

    Did you know the average office worker takes just 3,000 steps a day? It’s no wonder so many of us aren’t as fit as we’d like to be. It’s pretty hard to get in shape sitting down all day – so why not challenge yourself and your co-workers to take 10,000 steps a day for the whole month of September.

    Steptember is a fun way to become more active while raising much needed funds for individuals with disabilities and their families.

    The Climb

    The 7 Summits

    Each team will have Seven Summits to climb during their journey. The number of steps it takes to reach the top of each summit is directly related to height of the summit. Each participant will reach all seven summits and the top of their virtual mountain by the end of the Steptember if they reach their target steps per day.

    Climb your way around the world!
