What started off as a chat between a couple of work colleagues, ended up as a whole workplace movement! Versatile Technology is participating in the Steptember Challenge to help raise funds for Cerebral Palsy.
Cerebral Palsy is a permanent physical disability that affects a person’s movement and posture. In Australia, 1 in 700 babies born are diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy!
The Steptember Challenge require you to move more than 10,000 steps a day for 28 days! The challenge has gotten the staff up and about, taking part in lunchtime walks and kicks of the footy. With only 4 days to go, VT has logged over 7,000,000 steps and raised over AUD2000.00!
10,000 steps a day can seem like a challenge for the everyday person but for those with Cerebral Palsy it can be impossible! The Steptember Challenge has been a great bonding experience in the workplace and have taught us to appreciate how lucky we are. Our contributes will go towards providing life-changing research, therapy and equipment for kids and adults with cerebral palsy.
What a great cause and we look forward to participating next year!
