Can we all agree this pandemic has left some of us feeling completely unmotivated to do much more than watch TikTok for hours just to watch other people fold towels like they do in a spa?
Maybe it’s time to challenge our personal health and fitness goals AND find a way to do something good for a good cause? STEPtember might be just the thing we all need at a time like this.
STEPtember is a 28-day completely virtual fundraising event that invites people of all ages and abilities to walk, run, wheel, ride, cartwheel – WHATEVER -- as much as they can during the month of September in the name of health, fitness and community all while supporting United Cerebral Palsy Central California.
For an entry fee that equals $1 a day, participants can sign up as an individual or a team and commit to moving and raising funds for the day programs UCPCC provides for children and adults with disabilities right here in the Central Valley from Sept. 1 through Sept. 28.
Participants can also compete against each other for prizes. At the end of the challenge, teams and individuals with the most steps and largest donation totals will be awarded.
“Steptember is a virtual event that helps people focus on getting in shape, changing their habits and making them a better person while helping to support a cause, United Cerebral Palsy of Central California and provide funds to help with research in helping to prevent cerebral palsy -- a win-win for everyone involved,” says UCPCC Executive Director Roger Slingerman.
To participate, visit www.steptember.us, register as an individual or as a team, choose the “Join an Organization” link and search for UCPCC to start your adventure and support our organization.
