1 NEWS2 Group steps up for charity event omen set sights on virtual summit to raise funds for cerebral palsy MUSTILLO RAQUEL email@example.com meters firmly clipped to their pants, four Millicent residents are putting their best foot forward in the battle against cerebral palsy. Jackie Wells, Alice Brennan, Sally Gregurke and Erin Little make up the JASE team that is taking the 10,000 step a day challenge as part of the Steptember campaign. In just over four weeks, the team has reached the top of the fi fth virtual summit by walking almost 600km. “We started doing the challenge at the start of the month and now we are among the top 5pc of Australia,” team leader Alice Brennan said. “It is actually surprising how challenging it is to reach 10,000 steps and staying committed is diffi cult but it is a great cause to be involved in. “It is a win-win situation because not only does it raise funds and awareness for people living with cerebral palsy, we get the daily amount of exercise in a fun way.” Each participant has seven virtual summits to climb during their journey, with each mountain height directly linked to the number of steps it takes to reach the top. “As a team we are sitting at over 700,000 steps and individually we usually all go over 10,000 steps a day.” Having been involved in fundraising campaigns each year, Ms Brennan said participants were eager to raise funds for the little known cause in 2014. “Cerebral palsy is one of the most common physical disabilities in childhood and in Australia a child is born with cerebral palsy every 15 hours,” she said. “Money raised through the campaign goes to equipment to help people living with cerebral palsy.” The team aims to raise $500 before the end of the campaign. “We have a few donation tins at some of the local businesses which we will tally at the end and people can access our page to track our progress or to donate,” Ms Brennan said. “As a team, we are a bit competitive, so we are hoping to reach the top of Mount Everest before the campaign is over.” Visit steptember.org.au to support and donate to the JASE team before the end of this month.
