South Waikato News - - Your Local News -

It is 3.43pm on Tues­day and I have trav­elled a measly 743 steps. So, only 9257 to go to hit Steptem­ber’s tar­get for the day!

A few col­leagues and I in­clud­ing South Waikato News re­porter Luke Kirkeby and Ta­mara Thorn and Steph Rangi from the Taupo Times - have de­cided to take on the Steptem­ber chal­lenge.

The goal is to take at least 10,000 steps a day and the aim is twofold: to raise money for the Cere­bral Palsy So­ci­ety and to get fit.

For those who move around a lot as part of their job, this is not too hard to achieve. If you are glued to your desk - it ba­si­cally in­volves tack­ing a 5km walk onto the day.

This has been a bit of an eye opener and I reckon any­one who has a desk job should give it a go.

Steph was boast­ing a mas­sive 4500 steps by the time she set foot in the door yes­ter­day and Luke man­aged to clock up 24,000 steps in one day!
