Steps for Life – Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy is the flagship fundraising event for Threads of Life. Since 2005, Steps for Life has not only increased health and safety awareness but it has also raised more than $7.3 million to provide support programs and services to families affected by a workplace life-altering injury, occupational disease or fatality. Last year, over 25 communities, the first week of May, gathered together in parks and/or on virtual events across Canada. In spite of any pandemic challenges, Steps for Life still raised more than $825,000.

We need strong corporate leaders to lead and inspire a culture shift where work-related deaths, injuries and illnesses are morally, socially and economically unacceptable. And there are many ways corporate sponsors can partner with us at a national, provincial and community level. Which sponsorship benefits work for you?

Other Ways to Support:

In-Kind Partnership:

We welcome in-kind contributions as well. However, in order to determine the level of recognition, with each in-kind sponsorship we do require a quote outlining the gift and its value.

Media Recognition:

Community media sponsors are a critical part of Steps for Life in each community. They help to spread the work, attracting more walkers and funds, and increasing the public’s understanding of health and safety. Community media sponsors provide the value of $2,000 or more in advertising, within the two months leading up to the walk (March 1 - May 1).
