Murdoch Childrens Research Institute want all children to have the opportunity to live a healthy and fulfilled life!
Which is why we are inviting kids, adults, grandparents, families and friends to join Stepathon, our national campaign that aims to raise vital funds to help our researchers prevent and cure the biggest health problems facing children – including allergies, obesity, diabetes, rare and genetic diseases, autism and cancer.
From 6 – 12 March 2017 Australian’s will step up to this challenge by committing to taking 100,000 steps.
The first 5,000 children to register will receive a free pedometer! All adult participants have the option to purchase a pedometer or use a fitness app on their smart phone to track their progress.
Founded in 2013, Stepathon was originally targeted at primary school children to promote the importance of getting active whilst raising funds for The Murdoch Childrens Research Institute. Over 60,000 children have participated raising just over $2M.
National fundraising support will help us continue to find cures but more importantly prevent illnesses and disease in babies, children and adolescents so they can lead long, healthy and fulfilling lives.
Individuals are encouraged to get a team of friends, family members or colleagues together and motivate each other to get moving and support life-saving research!
Take on the challenge and register today to make a positive difference to the lives of seriously ill children everywhere.
