FROM THE EDITOR
It’s not even September yet, but the signs of Spring are all around. Bright yellow freesias, magnolia trees in full bloom and blossoms are promising another golden summer on the Shore. Weirdly, there are even a few pohutukawalike blooms in my street. A few of us in the office have signed up to Steptember, organised by the Cerebral Palsy Society. It’s a great idea. It will get the warmer seasons off on the right foot, by massively increasing the amount of exercise we do. We are excited about our new pedometers and keen to head home for walks and runs to test them out. Plus, we will be fundraising to help children and adults living with cerebral palsy. People with cerebral palsy face challenges far more significant than 10,000 steps a day. Children with cerebral palsy don’t know whether they will be able to take even one step and may need special equipment. This project will raise funds for such equipment, programmes, research and education grants. To get involved, check out Steptember.org.nz. Meanwhile, I’m heading out for a run!
