Walkers in yellow T-shirts

Steps for Life is the major fundraiser for Threads of Life – all the money raised through the walk is used to provide services to families coping with the effects of workplace fatalities, life-altering injuries or occupational disease. Want to chip in? Here’s how:

  1. Walk – It’s inspiring to see that sea of yellow t-shirts across Canada every year! Find your local walk, come out on walk day and join the national Steps for Life movement.
  2. FUNdraise – If you’re planning to walk –and even if you’re not – you can make your involvement more meaningful by raising money to support Threads of Life families. We have great online tools, and tips for fundraising in your workplace and community.
  3. Sponsor – Community and national sponsors make a huge contribution to Steps for Life’s success. Suggest to your employers that they become a Steps for Life sponsor –it’s a great way to show a commitment to health and safety.
  4. Volunteer – Steps for Life is volunteer-powered! You can help your local committee plan the walk from scratch, or come out on walk day to hand out t-shirts, direct traffic or take photos. There’s a role for everyone!
  5. Spread the word – Let others know about Steps for Life. Share our Facebook or Twitter posts; put up a poster or have a conversation. Let’s get the whole country on board!
