YOUR EMPLOYEES

Join the movement towards inclusion

1-30 September 2023

STEPtember is Australia’s favourite and largest health and well-being virtual fundraising challenge, encouraging participants to move the equivalent of 10,000 steps a day and raise funds for babies, children and adults with cerebral palsy.

Accessible across Australia, STEPtember promotes connection and teamwork, friendly competition, and encourages a more active, engaged and productive work-force.

Get in touch today, and find out how we can support your organisation to make a move.

HOW STEPTEMBER WORKS
FOR ORGANISATIONS

01

Sign Up

Encourage team work, no matter where your employees are working from.
Nominate a captain and register together as a team of 4.
Participants are also welcome to take on the challenge as a Solo STEPper.

02

Step

Over 40 activities count towards your stepping goal (e.g. walking, swimming, wheeling).
Track steps through the STEPtember App, Google Fit or Apple Health. 
Log your progress via the app or online.

03

Fundraise

Organisations and STEPpers fundraise online, supported with access to helpful tips and official STEPtember Trainers.
Online leaderboards track the progress of your teams & departments against each other and participating organisations.

04

Share

STEPpers can celebrate their success on social media and encourage others to step up and join the virtual challenge.
Fundraising toolkits, digital resources and email templates are available to help you and your employees spread the word.

Double your employees' impact

Matched giving is a great opportunity to boost employees' fundraising and make double the impact for people with cerebral palsy.

You raise $10 → your organisation matches your donations dollar for dollar → your donation becomes $20!

Ask your Organisation (CEO, HR or CSR/ESG) if they have a matched giving program in place that will match every dollar raised by employees for their STEPtember challenge. Options could include matching dollar for dollar, double match, or matching to a capped amount - you never know until you ask!
