Thermogroup Supporting Steptember

This September, 10 members of the Thermogroup team are stepping out to support those impacted by Cerebral Palsy as part of the Steptember challenge.
Every 20 hours, an Australian child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood. It’s caused by damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth – directly affecting a person’s movement and posture for life.
STEPtember is a fun and inclusive virtual event that challenges you to walk, swim, ride, wheel or spin your way to 10,000 steps per day during the month of September – all while helping to improve the lives of children and adults who live with cerebral palsy. This means collective the team is walking 100,000 steps!
The donation period is now over, however you can register interest for the 2022 fundraising tomorrow.


The money goes to helping people living with cerebral palsy to live their best lives. These are just some of the incredible programs the 2021 funds are providing.
