Schiavello Group announces sponsorship of a major event that aims to get Australians up on their feet and beat lifestyle diseases.

Urging all Australians to take a stand for better health, On Your Feet Australia organised by Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, aims to increase awareness about the ill-effects of prolonged sitting at the workplace in addition to raising funds to support medical research into heart disease and diabetes.

How to participate?

1. Register a team by sending team info including team name, team members' names and their email addresses, and designated team leader, to Gwen Goh at [email protected]

2. Once a team has been registered, each member of the team will get an email from Everyday Hero (the online registration platform) to complete their individual registration online and receive a starter-pack including a tips and tricks sheet with ideas on how to give up their chair on June 11.

3. June 11 will be 'standing Thursday' for participants as they take on the 'quit the sit' challenge at their workplace and raise funds for a good cause. Each team will receive AUD $10 from Schiavello to kick start their fundraising. The team that raises the most funds on the day will win a Krossi height adjustable desk by Schiavello and the next five best fundraising teams will win a QuickStand sit stand workstation solution by Humanscale.
