Heroes stepping it up for HeartKids

thumbnail_Stadium Stomp.001

Stadium Stomp is a unique and fun fitness challenge where participants are sent on a course to climb up and down the thousands of stairs at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Course lengths and options do vary so check-out what would suit you.

This event is open to all levels of fitness. You’ll get out of it what you put in. It’s damn tough at a pace, scenic at a stroll, but best of all it’s something you can do on your own or with a team and at your own pace because you aren’t timed! That goal is yours to set.

This event is a must for those looking for their next unique fitness challenge and who would like to raise funds for HeartKids, just select it as your charity of choice when you register for Stadium Stomp.

Or be bold and wear a Super Hero costume! For further info visit https://www.stadiumstomp.com/fundraising/ or contact nicole.young@heartkids.org.au

Note: Many of the morning sessions are already sold out but there are still midday and afternoon sessions available!
