In response to community feedback, we’re doing Walktober a little differently this year. Many of you have told us you want to move in different ways, not just walk, to help create a healthier, more active generation of Aussie kids.

So this year, that’s exactly what we want you to do! Challenge yourself, or get a team together and aim to move more for 31 minutes a day for the month of October. Help us get more Aussie kids more active by raising funds for your efforts.

It’s easy to incorporate more movement into our daily activities. Walk to the shops or walk the kids to school and enjoy some quality time together. Get a team of work colleagues together and exercise in your lunch break. Aim to run, ride or swim a little further than you normally would. Or you could use it as an opportunity to try a new exercise that you haven’t done before.

Let’s all get our bodies moving this October and move more for kids’ health.
