Congratulations! South Australia, together you reach the 1 billion steps goal in 35 days.
South Australia's Billion Steps Challenge
Together, 10,000 Steps and Wellbeing SA brought South Australians together for the 2021 Billion Steps Challenge to encourage each other to find more ways to move throughout the day.
South Australia's 2021 Billion Steps Challenge started on the 1st of October 2021 and was completed in 35 days when the billion steps goal was reached (29 days faster than in 2020)! The total steps and activity logged by every 10,000 Steps member located in South Australia was automatically tallied throughout the Challenge towards the billion steps goal.
Wellbeing SA is committed to supporting the health and wellbeing of all South Australians. Every step that we take counts towards being healthier and happier. The more we move our bodies, the more physical and emotional health benefits we gain. Physical activity strengthens our muscles and bones, improves our posture and balance, helps us to sleep better and boosts our mood.

What our 2020 Billion Steps participants had to say...
I loved the idea, motivating to be part of a huge state wide challenge.
The Billions step challenge encouraged me to aim for a goal each day of being active.
I liked having a shared challenge. SA isn’t a very big place, so it is nice to know that as a team we walked a billion steps.
During a rough year has been nice to have something positive to bring the team together. The steps challenge has definitely improved my fitness, even on the days i was too tired i did not want to let the team down so would go for an extra walk to get my steps up. I am looking forward to making this a part of my day to day life.
