Sugar-Free September challenges Aussies to give up added and refined sugar for the month of September to raise funds and awareness for kids, adults and families impacted by muscular dystrophy, a rare muscle-wasting disease with no cure. The challenge also promotes healthy food and lifestyle choices and aims to empower all Aussies to live longer, happier lives.

When: 1 - 30 September.

How: Sign up > make a team > fundraise > give up added & refined sugar during September.

Why: Give sweet opportunities to kids and adults living with the daily challenges of progressive muscle-wasting conditions like Muscular Dystrophy.

Support: Tips, inspiration, and guidance from the Sugar-Free September team, expert health advice from Nutrition Australia, free fitness program from Peaches Pilates, meal kits from Able Foods and prizes from amazing Australian food brands and local businesses.
