The Team Challenge really heated up in 2019! Stay tuned to find out who led the way when the final tallies are announced in early June.

You showed up ready to walk the talk.

Wearing bright yellow T-shirts, you shared your commitment to workplace health and safety — and your reasons to walk. Your shared stories brought Steps for Life — and the devastating reality of workplace injury, illness, and death — into the light in your community.

To the thousands who showed up to walk in Steps for Life walks over the past few weeks, thank you again for participating in Steps for Life! We’re so grateful to our national and community sponsors who continue to grow local commitment to supporting families after a workplace tragedy. We’d like to extend our biggest thanks to the volunteers who made each of these events possible. Your commitment and enthusiasm is truly inspiring. The walk may now be fading into your rearview mirror, but behind the scenes we continue to process hundreds of cash and cheque pledges.

So, here’s the GREAT news

Together, we have nearly reached our goal of $675,000! More pledges are being processed daily, and the fundraising thermometer continues to rise. Thank you!

See you in 2020!

Be sure to save the date! We hope you’ll make calendar space to walk and fundraise again in 2020! Most Steps for Life walks will take place on the first weekend of May, but be sure to check our website in January 2020 for your local walk date.

You’re the best!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for being an amazing part of this growing, record-breaking event! Most locations have photo galleries from event day – check Facebook for your local walk page to see if you got snapped. And of course, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

PS: Still have some cash and cheque donations to submit? No problem! You can submit your completed pledge sheets to our office at [email protected] or by mailing to us at Threads of Life, PO Box 9066, 1795 Ernest Ave., London, ON, N6E 2V0. The deadline for submitting cheques or giving online is June 30, 2019.

While some communities had beautiful warm spring days, others braved rain, wind, and snow — like these intrepid walkers in Calgary!
