Inspired by the courageous people she met at the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, celebrity make-up artist Deanne Dority explains how taking part in the fund-raising campaign was life-changing.
Well that day started … the 1st of September, 2017, and I started to hit the pavement , by doing my 10,000 steps a day – everyday. If a few commitments hampered my required steps, I would make those steps up the following day or that week.
Each week I would plan out my route, trying a new area to explore like north Sydney to Luna Park and back , 7klms = 10,000 steps .Before long, I became addicted to the healthy sensation of doing my steps and starting losing weight – Woo Hoo! Because this was my first time doing Steptember I kept it within my family and raised close to $500.00 .. that might not seam like a lot of money BUT every cent every dollar counts to help.
This year will be Bigger and Better and a few friends and family members are signing up too, and we will be doing a lot of walking together and getting fitter together and challenging ourselves,
