A massive thank you to everyone involved in #MoveAgainstCancer 2022. This year, despite the financial challenge of rising interest rates, over 600 participants were able to raise an incredible $52,205.75! Together we walked 123,590,954 steps too!

I’ve also been amazed by the generosity of local businesses this year with our sponsors: Eastcoast Beverages and Smile On Clinics coming on as major sponsors. We also had support from Coastal Goddess, The Athlete’s Foot Erina, Coastal Rehab Hub, Conveniently Active, MedWorld, Reality Marketing, Adreka and Davistown RSL who have donated prizes and their time to attract more people to the event.

Next year I’ll be extending the event to get even more people involved. With every #MoveAgainstCancer I run, I like to reiterate that the event isn’t about pushing people to donate as much as they can or to move as much as possible…it’s simply about getting a community together, moving a little more than they may have. With this sentiment, I receive wonderful messages from people that are feeling more positive, connecting with friends and family, and feeling more confident in their body’s ability to move.
If you got something positive out of this year’s #MoveAgainstCancer, reach out to me via social media or email and let me know.

This year’s Best Team Name went to a vote and won by a landslide. Tayla took home a Garmin Forerunner 245 music edition as well as a hamper from Bulk Nutrients for the team name Red Hot Chilli Steppers.
Next year I hope to see some RHCS merchandise!
Most Creative Social Media Post
I’m pleased to announce this prize went to a team captain that moves in a creative way and guides hundreds of others to do the same! Not only that but she made my social media all the more exciting when I got to share the different ways they got their ‘steps’.
Kimnastix team captain Kim won with all the handstand walks, summersaults, and tumbles her and her team of gymnasts put together. Thank you for your involvement, Kimmi!
An ‘Unwinder Spa Package’ from Five Star Day Spa and a Garmin Forerunner 245 music edition is coming your way!
We look forward to you joining us next year for an even bigger and better #MOVEAGAINSTCANCER!
