What's in it for me?
The potential to add years of healthy living to your life for starters!
An 8-year study conducted on 4,000 people, found that those who did just 15 minutes of moderate activity a day, added approximately 3 years to their life. Integrate a little daily activity and it really will go a long way!
During your 10,000 Steps Australia challenge we’re going to give you everything you need to make active changes for a longer, happier and healthier future.
And it’s going to be fun!
You’re going to get personal tracking tools, virtual milestone medals, mini-activity challenges and walking tips that will engage, motivate and reward your participation – and it doesn’t matter whether you’re currently taking 3,000 steps a day or 30,000 steps, there are walking plans for everyone. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg...
It’s a team challenge
You’ll be teaming up with your workmates – so there’ll be plenty of opportunities for some friendly rivalry.
But it’s about you too!
