Deniliquin Pastoral Times
Teams STEP out for charity
Fleming Partners staff members have been stepping around Deniliquin throughout September as part of the STEPtember challenge.
The challenge is for each team member to do at least 10,000 steps each day of September.
Team member Leanne Mulham says it is not an easy task for the participants who spend a lot of time sitting at a desk, but that they are on target to hit 300,000 steps by the end of the month.
‘‘It has been great for moral and our fitness during lockdown,’’ she said.
The challenge raises awareness and funding for cerebral palsy.
Fleming Partners has registered three teams, with financial planning group Count Financial. Count Charitable will match every dollar raised by the network up to $25,000.
To date the combined Fleming Partners teams have raised $1,641. They hope to raise $2500 by the end of the month combined, with staff lunch fundraisers planned over the next week.
Fleming Flyers team members are Staci Richardson, Keerthana Herath, Meghana Shanbhag and Anthony Jayawardena, and Fleming Flamingos members are Sharon Kingston, Sue McKenzie, Sue Mulligan and Mrs Mulham.
The third team, Flemings Favourites, is made up of Deniliquin High School students Annie Harvey, Kate Westcott, Abbie Whitethorn and Elena Mulham.
