Make Every Step Count

Limber up, be a hero and get ready to make a difference to your own life and the lives of those you love by taking part in Time to Move 2016.

To mark Arthritis Week – 29 May to 4 June – we have developed a national awareness campaign about the importance of exercise at all ages to keep a spring in the step of Australians as they walk through life.  At its core is a challenge for you to walk 10,000 steps a day for 7 days. That is the recommended number of steps that should be walked each day to keep fit and healthy.
