Help Laura & friends walk 10 million steps
SYDNEY, it’s time to get moving. This June The Sunday Telegraph is asking all Sydneysiders to get off the couch and try to walk a combined 10 million steps.
Leading the way will be former Miss Universe Australia Laura Dundovic, Channel 7 News presenter Angie Asimus, GWS Giants player Erin McKinnon and Australian touch football sisters Danni and Shellie Davis.
According to Ms Dundovic, exercise has always been an important part of her life and she hopes to motivate Sydneysiders to get up and get outside.
“I’ve grown up with a mum and dad who were both really into fitness,” she said.
“I see them now both in their 50s loving life and fit as ever, and I just am really hoping to be like that.”
Touch footy sisters Danni and Shellie Davis can’t remember a time when exercise wasn’t a part of life. “We have to be at the top of our game, which means we have to be fit. For us, exercise is our life,” Danni said.
And, while most of Sydney is quite active, Danni believes we could certainly do better as a city, which is why she has decided to become an ambassador for the 10 million steps.
“I think there is a big divide in Sydney. There are the people who love the outdoors, but there are also Sydneysiders who don’t get out there and just choose to stay indoors,” she said.
The Big Movement will be running from June 24 to 25. All participants have the chance to win a Fitbit.
