I'm Stepping Up To Breast Cancer

This August, the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is challenging all Australians to come together to Step Up to Breast Cancer.

I've stepped up to the challenge to complete 10,000 steps every day throughout the month and raise money for vital breast cancer research.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. This year 20,825 Australians will be diagnosed. That is why I have stepped up to the challenge to help fund the future of research and change these stats.

Please donate to my page and you’ll be helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation take one step closer to reaching their goal of Zero Deaths From Breast Cancer by 2030.

YOU can make a difference. Let me know if you want to Step Up to Breast Cancer with me!

Last Day

Tuesday 31st Aug
I finished it! 
I'm not going to lie this was absolutely a struggle for me. 
I went from having no additional fitness in my daily life to completing 10,000 steps every single day. 
The first week was filled with blisters and learning about proper footwear. 
The second and third filled with bumps in low mental health, having to stay at home for COVID results with no way to make the commitment and then working extra to get an catch up. 
I'm finishing the challenge just shy of the step goal and my fundraising target but I'm honestly so proud of myself for what I have achieved. 
This has been the most rewarding experience of the last year and has changed my outlook on improving my physical health moving forward. 
Thank you to everyone who has financially and personally supported me in this journey, you're the ones who have made a real difference in this world and I'm so proud to call you friends and family! 

Stepping Up

Negative and Positive!

Saturday 14th Aug
I got the good news late yesterday that I'm negative for COVID and positive for leaving the house! I can go back out for my daily exercise while wearing a mask at all times and socially distancing from my fellow community members. 
I also invested in some comfortable walking shoes and the difference they have made is astonishing. 
I went well beyond the 10,000 steps before I even began to feel it and I'm absolutely amazed! 

Pausing

Friday 13th Aug
While I'm in self isolation I cannot leave the house and therefore, at least temporarily, cannot complete my steps. 
This is incredibly disappointing to me but I'd like to take a moment to appreciate my friends and families continuous support. 
Today my good friend Te'a "donated her steps" for the cause to fill in my gap, so you'll notice 4,997 added to my challenge for the day. 
Thank you so much love!!

End of Week 1 Update!

Monday 9th Aug
So it's Day 9 of the challenge and due to some mental health issues that prevented me from completing my goal on Saturday I am 6,066 steps behind the goal currently!
But I do have a plan to add an additional 2,000 steps for the next 3-4 days to help me catch up! 

Supercharge Friday One!

Friday 6th Aug
SUPERCHARGE FRIDAY ONE!
 
Today marks the first of the four Super Charge Fridays and a chance for us to win big! All we need to do is get an additional $100 worth of donations on my individual fundraising page by midnight tonight and we will go into the draw to win...
 
2 x $500 The Active Gift Card from The Card Network (participating retailers include Nike, Puma, Adidas, Foot Locker, Hype and much more, here to see).
 
Why am I saying we and us? 
Because while I'm doing the steps I absolutely couldn't be prouder of everyone who is being so supportive of me and this charity. It is your donations that are supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation! 

If I reach an additional $100 of donations tonight my account will be entered the draw for above! 
But if I do win I have no need for both vouchers myself! So I'll be giving one away at random to anyone donating to my fundraising page! 

Together we can do this and help bring deaths by breast cancer down to 0 by 2030! <3

Days 3-5

Thursday 5th Aug
I'm finding each day the reach to 10,000 steps is easier and more relaxing! 
I can't wait to see what it's like at day 31

Day 2

Monday 2nd Aug
Day 2 steps! I walked all the way from my home to Blacktown station and back in two hours! My feet are exhausted but I feel amazing!

Day 1

Sunday 1st Aug
Day 1 of the 10k a day step challenge:
I just completed my first walk for the challenge! I did 9,543 steps, and I'm counting on the rest of my day to fill in that 457! 
I usually get about 5k steps on a work day and on a day I'm not working only 200 ish cause I'm lazy. 
I wanted to do a challenge that was good for my health but also helping a cause I really believe in. 

Let's see how this goes!
