(Winner of the 'Best New Zealand Walking Promotion' Living Streets Aotearoa Golden Foot Awards - New Zealand National Walking Awards 2009)

A concept of trying to move more and accumulate 10,000 steps over the course of the day. This is from the time that you get up in the morning and go to bed in the evening. 

If you are not very active right now, that's OK. It is important to start out slowly and gradually increase your activity over time. 

Even small increases in your daily activities can have a big impact on your health - small sustainable steps for life!

Many people can reach 10,000 steps a day by adding a 30-minute walk to their everyday activities.
