‘One million steps’ campaign to get Aussies off the couch

On Sunday 25 March the Heart Foundation and the Prime Minister announced a new walking initiative – the Prime Minister’s One million steps. Between now and 11 August, Australians across the country are encouraged to start walking and clock up their steps. The more they walk, the more they’ll be rewarded – with app badges and entries to prize draws. Reach 1 million steps, and they’ll enter the prize draw for an Auswalk holiday!

The Prime Minister’s One million steps is open to individuals via the Heart Foundation Walking app, and Heart Foundation Walking groups.

Sign up before 31 March and you’ll be in the draw to win a $100 rebel voucher – just download the app or tick the sign-up box in your Heart Foundation Walking profile.

Individual walkers can join by:

  • downloading the Heart Foundation Walking app
  • syncing the app to their fitness tracker (Apple Health, Google Fit or Fitbit)
  • as they walk they’ll automatically enter prize draws for 100,000 steps, 250,000 steps, 500,000 steps, 750,000 steps and 1 million steps

Heart Foundation Walking group members can join by:

  • ticking the ‘yes’ box on their online profile to join the Prime Minister’s One million steps (or their Walk Organiser can tick the box for them)
  • joining their regular walks
  • as they walk, they’ll automatically enter prize draws for 10, 25, 50, 75 and 100 group walks.

Entry is open to everyone, it’s free and you can sign up all the way to 11 August and still enter the prize draws.
