One, Two, Step, this September

A child is born with Cerebral Palsy in Australia every 15 hours, with around 40,000 people in Australia living with the condition.

Many Australian's this September will be joining in to walk 10,000 steps a day in the hopes to raise money and awareness for the condition.

Cerebral Palsy is an umbrella term for a group of disorders caused by injury to the brain, most commonly during pregnancy.

It is a permanent, lifelong condition with no known cure and can range from weakness in one hand, to an almost complete lack of voluntary movement.

Steptember provides a fun and active way for Aussies to team up and raise funds to provide support, therapy and equipment for those affected by Cerebral Palsy.

Sarah caught up with Lucy Jacka, General Manager of fundraising for Steptember, to find out more about the event and when it starts.

You can become involved in Steptember by simply visiting steptember.org.au and registering your team.
