Sarah Murdoch puts her best foot forward to launch a step-a-thon for kids.

Murdoch Childrens Research Institute ambassador Sarah Murdoch has teamed up with swimmer Stephanie Rice and launched a new program for kids to encourage primary schoolers to become more active and raise money at the same time!

It’s called Step-a-thon and will run from the 2nd to the 8th of September. Children must register on the website and nominate how many steps they can take per day and get family and friends to sponsor them. All funds raised will go to the Murdoch Children’s Insitute to research into chilhood illness and disease.

Children who register will receive a free slap-on pedometer so they can easily count the number of steps taken each day.  Sarah Murdoch says the project is a fun and healthy way for kids to help other children.

Please visit the Step-a-thon website for more information and/or to sign up.
