Volunteering is a great way to get involved.


We are so grateful to our volunteers who contribute their time, expertise, and skills to make Steps for Life an amazing experience for our participants, their friends and family.

The Steps for Life walk has grown rapidly, thanks to the wonderful enthusiasm and involvement of our many volunteers, from local walk committee members spreading the word by posting posters in their communities and on their company bulletin boards, asking local business leaders to support the event, to those helping on-site on walk day.
