Every Step Counts - The Results

A massive THANK YOU to all our participants for getting active in Every Step Counts 2022!

After 5 weeks, 28,600 participants joined us in tracking 5.2 million kilometres in support of their club and community. That's the equivalent of walking all the way to the moon and back five times with an average daily distance per participant of 5.2km.

More than 450 clubs hit our 4,000km target and were entered into our O'Neills Prize Draw in their province.

Club registration for Every Step Counts 2023 is now open!
