Every step counts with Steps for Life!
With Steps for Life - Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy, we're working together to support families affected by life-altering workplace injuries, illnesses and deaths. It’s a unique way to educate your community about the devastating ripple effects of a workplace tragedy and how we can work together to prevent others from being injured or killed on the job. Traditionally, Steps for Life is held as a community walk, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that won't be possible this year.
But the need is still here. Families who've experienced a workplace tragedy still need our support. They still need Threads of Life's programs and services to support them through the coming days, weeks, months, and years.
We may not be able to have a public event for Steps for Life 2020 - Calgary, but we can still support!
How can you help? Design your own personal Steps for Life activity!
- dress in yellow -- or even wear last year's Steps for Life shirt!
- cycle in your house, take your dog for a walk, or have a family game night! Think outside of the box! If you're outside of your home, just be sure to follow current public health guidelines.
- fundraise and share your reason for participating on social media (Be sure to tag us and share your why! #MyWHY and #MyWHYMyWAY)
Steps for Life 2020 - #MyWhyMyWay
While we won't be hosting community gatherings this year because of COVID-19, you can still step up for Steps for Life! It's a chance to do something positive in a difficult time -- choose your own activity and demonstrate your commitment to health and safety, and your support for families affected by workplace tragedy. Register in your community, connect with a virtual team, and share online with thousands of other Canadians, all working together to make a difference for Canadian families.
