Help Laura & friends walk 10 mil­lion steps

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - SARAH KEOGHAN

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.
