After raising over $100,000 last year, Central Coast’s Biggest Step Challenge, #MoveAgainstCancer, is back for 2022.
Moving more is extremely important for our mind and body, so we’re encouraging residents of the Central Coast to participate in our annual #MoveAgainstCancer Step Challenge this September. We’re on a mission to get people exercising and moving more to improve their health and happiness! Reduce your cancer risk and enjoy the beautiful Central Coast by joining us on this mission.
The 2022 September #MoveAgainstCancer Step Challenge encourages people to record their steps over the whole month to win prizes whilst fundraising for Cancer Council NSW – Central Coast. Participation costs $10, with all money going to Cancer Council to ensure nobody on the Central Coast faces a cancer diagnosis alone.
Bigger & Better
This is the third annual #MoveAgainstCancer step challenge. Last year we raised over $100,000 for Cancer Council and had over 800 people involved. We hope to raise even more this year!
It’s such a simple, achievable challenge for people to participate in. When asked ‘How do I get more active?’ the best answer is always to start with a walk.
Moving more has unbelievable benefits on your health – reduced risk of cancers, reduced risk of cardiorespiratory disease, improved cognition and more. Importantly, it has a huge impact on our mental health, something we all need right now. The pandemic and current financial climate has caused so much stress and anxiety. Getting outside and staying active massively helps your headspace, helping us to stay positive as we move forward.
“We are excited to see this initiative return to the community for its third year. As well as the positive health benefits gained from those participating, the funds raised will support local cancer patients here on the coast, and fund critical research”Jaynie Moloney, Community Relations Coordinator, Cancer Council NSW – Central Coast
Let’s Get Moving
The challenge starts on Thursday, September 1st and will run to Friday, September 30th.
We suggest using any type of activity watch or smartphone to track your steps. And if you need more motivation, logging your steps each day puts you in the running to win prizes! There are many categories to win: the individual with the most steps, most steps as a team, biggest fundraiser, a caption competition, and more.
We want as many Coasties as possible to come together in teams to step it out and help raise much needed funds for cancer research.
