Steptember is upon us! Yes, you read that right: it’s Steptember, and that typo is on purpose.
Some of our favourite Kiwi celebs are getting behind a great cause supporting a charity that helps raise awareness for Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities.
The aim is for people to count their daily steps and document their activity via ‘stelfies’ to be able to win $5k worth of travel money.
Silver Fern Martia Tutaia explains how Steptember works.
