Time to don your walking shoes!

You're invited to increase your physical activity and improve your cardiovascular health by participating in this year's 10,000 Steps Challenge.

Commencing 6 August 2014, participants (in teams of seven) will record and log their daily steps, aiming to cover 6,000km over eight weeks (equivalent to walking from Byron Bay to Canarvon!)

To register your interest:

Team captains are to send an email to diane.bunch@newcastle.edu.au with a list of the seven team members' names, a team name and each person's email address. Once registered you will receive an email from 10000steps.org.au

What you will receive:

  • A pedometer
  • Log book
  • Pedometer strap
  • Drawstring bag
  • Access to the 10,000 step website and free resources
