Making every step count


When you register for STEPtember, you’re helping United Cerebral Palsy (UCP)—one of the largest health nonprofits in the country—provide services to thousands of children and adults living with disabilities.

Although the goal is 10,000 steps a day, for 28 days, the way you choose to reach it is uniquely yours. Dance, skate, bike, climb, roll or just walk your way towards that daily goal, while raising money for a tremendous cause.

So, are you ready to show us how you step? Let’s get started.

How it works

Use a fitness tracker, smartphone app, or pedometer to track your activity throughout the challenge. You can "step" any way you like! Dance, run, surf, cycle, swim, roll

  1. Now

    Find three friends, family members or colleagues and register your team. Remember: every step counts, so the more people you ask to support you, the more likely you and your team are reach your goal during the challenge.

  2. Sept 1st

    Decide on a reliable method to track your activity. We can also send you a pedometer when you pay the $30 registration option.

  3. Sept 28th

    Start planning. Mark off Sept. 1st-28th on your calendar, and come up with creative ways to get the most steps and fundraise.

  1. Choose 3 friends, family members or colleagues and register your team today.

  2. Decide which fitness tracker, smartphone app, or pedometer you will use to track your activity. If you would like us to mail you a pedometer, select the $30 paid registration option and we'll send one your way.

  3. Mark September 1st-28th on your calendar and start planning how you will get the most "steps" into your day and how you can make the most of your fundraising by using the tools provided.
