Stop making it more of a challenge than it needs to be!
Join Central Coast’s Biggest Step Challenge!
It’s easy to get caught up with how much we should move and how much we do. The recommended daily step goal is 10,000 for a healthy adult. Unfortunately, less than 1 in 5 Australian adults reach this goal.
Moreover, the latest report from the Australian Health Policy Collaboration has 44.5% of Australian adults not meeting guidelines on weekly physical activity*
Together with Central Coast Primary Care, I’m giving you the opportunity and motivation to change that. We have created a challenge to improve your physical and mental health through the simplest movement there is, walking.
This September we’re making it as easy as we can with the Central Coast’s biggest step challenge – Move Against Cancer.
Join our FB group
Find a team amongst your friends, family, or colleagues (with our Facebook group “Central Coast Move Against Cancer” or we can even help you find some teammates).
Don’t forget to contact Doctor Do More
Once you have registered, please Contact @DoctorDoMore via Instagram, Facebook, or Email Dr. Ash Bowden- firstname.lastname@example.org when your team captain has registered.
For a minimum donation of $10 per person, we’ll add you to the coast-wide tournament, where you can compete against my hospital colleagues, the local running clubs, and lots of teams up and down the coast.
Sing up today! registrations close August 28th

The goal at the heart of this challenge is to improve mental and physical health through physical activity. We have got the unique opportunity to do this in a way that will also raise funds for Australia’s leading cancer charity, Cancer Council.
Now more than ever, looking after yourself and those you care about is paramount. This fundraiser challenge is COVID-19 friendly, allowing people to stay mentally and physically active, whilst socially distancing, by encouraging the simplest form of movement.
Move against Cancer Central Coast and let raise funds for cancer research!
