Unitec staff talked the talk as well as walked the walk when it came to living a healthy lifestyle and raising money for cerebral palsy by taking part in Steptember.
The Steptember challenge encourages people to walk 10,000 steps per day and raise money for cerebral palsy. Two hundred staff from across Unitec Mt Albert and Henderson campuses took part. Campus Services and Planning Director Pam Malcolm says she did not hesitate to sign up. ”This challenge gave me the push I needed to increase the amount of walking I do every day”.
It ties in with what the organisation is doing to be a health promoting organisation. Fitbits were provided by Unitec at a subsidised price, to motivate people to participate.
Pam Malcolm also represents Unitec on our Strategic Leader Group. Our manager Kerry Allan congratulated Unitec on being a proactive organisation and using Steptember to support staff wellbeing.
