Frequently Asked Questions
Please find the answers to a few frequently asked questions below. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us and we will get back to you.
If an event has a registration fee (for example, $10 for #MoveAgainstCancer 2023) this goes towards covering administrative costs. These include website development and ongoing IT support, marketing the event and administrative time onboarding and assisting participants as well as running in-person events during the challenge. If the registration fee poses a barrier to the event, please contact Dr Ash Bowden at firstname.lastname@example.org who is more than happy to cover costs. For Do More Steps events that raise money for a charity, at the end of the event, a financial report will be created to maintain transparency and summarise the total raised. Due to third-party payment systems (e.g. Stripe, PayPal etc) a percentage of all online transactions will cover the processing cost, this ranges from 1 to 4%.
Of course! Do More Steps aims to promote movement, and fundraising during particular events is seen as a positive by-product. If you’d like to donate directly to an associated/supported charity, visit their website or get in touch directly. For the Cancer Council website, visit: https://www.cancer.org.au
Unfortunately not at this point. 100% of donations received by Doctor Do More (ABN 99787509966) will be passed on to the chosen charity at the end of the event and this will be documented in a financial report for any events taking registration fees and/or donations. Although all donations will be passed on in full, Doctor Do More does not have 'Donation Gift Recipient' (DGR) status and therefore payments are not tax deductible. If you’re in need of a receipt or refund given this information please contact the event administrator. If you would like to donate directly to the chosen charity we encourage you to do so. For any questions please contact Dr Ash Bowden via email at email@example.com
Do More Steps hosts multiple step challenges/events, one of them being #MoveAgainstCancer which runs for the duration of September. #MoveAgainstCancer is not Steptember although there are similarities.

This is entirely up to you! A lot of people that participate in a step challenge haven’t recorded their steps before so don’t know exactly how many they do day to day. We recommend getting familiar with a step tracker – whether it’s a smartwatch or your phone – to see how many steps you take on an average day. You might want to set yourself an ambitious target for the challenge or maybe it’s more about consistency. Whatever you do, choose a target that suits your activity level and try not to base it on those you’re in the event with.
