Walking in Memory of Austyn Schenstead
Welcome to our team home page. We are walking in loving memory of Austyn Ryan Taylor Schenstead.
Austyn was tragically killed on a construction site on November 30, 2016 at the age of 19. This day forever changed our lives and the lives of those working with him.
Austyn's Friends and Family hope to honor him by raising money to help those affected by work place illness, injury and tragedy.
Our family greatly appreciates all the support we have been given by this organization and from our friends and family. Without you all, I don't know how we would get through this journey.

ONE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Imagine what a team can do. We formed a team for this year’s Steps for Life event to walk with communities across the country, united, knowing that together we are changing the future for all those affected by workplace tragedies.
Did you know that everyday, 3 families will receive the news that a loved one is not returning home from work that day? Their families, friends and co-workers will rally together to be there for one another.
The Association for Workplace Tragedy Family Support, known as Threads of Life, supports the healing journey
of families who have suffered from a workplace fatality, traumatic life-altering injury, or occupational disease. In fact, Threads of Life currently supports more than 2,700 family members across Canada affected by workplace tragedies.
Steps for Life events not only raise money for these programs, they also aim to educate the community about the devastating ripple effects of each workplace tragedy and how we can work together to prevent others being injured or killed on the job.
