Stepping For A Cause

What is Steptember?
Steptember is a charity event to raise funds for and give support to people living with cerebral palsy, which is a disability that affects movement and posture. This event challenges anyone who wants to support this cause to take 10,000 steps a day for 28 days in September. Be an #AgentForGood and join the Good 360 team in stepping for a worthy cause!
Good 360 Team for Steptember
Our team is committed to finishing their 10,000 steps every day- some dedicated steppers even going as far as taking 15,000 steps a day!
Here’s what some of our team members have been doing to get their steps up:
Keitan, who loves competing and hates losing said, “Tennis and whatever it takes to win! P.S. Cheryl threatened to reset my pedometer, so I’ll have to fashion a case for it.”
Cheryl is actively taking half hour walks during lunch time and is generally making more of a conscious effort to walk everywhere. As for Keitan’s baseless claims, Cheryl responded to his allegations with, “Keitan – we’re a team, as if I would try to reset your pedometer!”
Stephen has been adding lunchtime walks, swimming and yoga as additional activities, as well as getting off a station earlier and walking home. An anonymous source has reported overhearing him say, “But honey, its for charity..”
Alison, our fearless leader has been waking up earlier for a quick walk in the morning before work and going for a run in the evening while making sure wildlife doesn’t attack during her outings.
Delicia is not doing very well but if she had a pet dog, she would have tied it to its collar to get her steps up.
Ross kept it simple and said, “I don’t walk.” But if he did, he’d look great doing it.
