Hi,

I’ve signed up to the Walktober Challenge. I’ve committed to walk every day in October to take steps to improve the health of Aussie kids. Individuals and teams taking part in the Challenge are raising money for a unique leadership program in schools around Australia, which is helping kids to become active role models for their peers, teachers and families. Teams and individuals taking part in the Walktober Challenge are aiming to raise $30,000 to support the Active Leaders Program.

Your support will help me raise money to reach this goal. Visit the Walktober Challenge page: http://www.walktober.org.au/walktober-challenge/ to donate to and help get more Aussie kids active.

You can also sign up as an individual or team, and be part a walking community that will complete a virtual walk of 15,598 km around Australia. You can sign up here: http://www.walktober.org.au/

Thanks!
