Sponsors carry the torch from the walk back to their workplaces

Steps for Life – Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy sponsors all help to light the way for workplace tragedy prevention while building a community of support for families affected by workplace tragedy. Contributions range from a $250 investment as a local Stepping Forward sponsor, up $10,000 or more as a national walk sponsor. Each year, Steps for Life sponsorship support grows nationally and at the community level.

As an awareness event and fundraiser, those dollars are important. The funds raised through Steps for Life each year fund Threads of Life’s family support services for individuals and families healing after a work-related fatality, life-altering injury or occupational disease. The funds raised keep these programs and services available at zero cost to families already struggling through the financial repercussions of a workplace tragedy.

But Steps for Life’s sponsors also have a contagious commitment to workplace safety and carrying the messages of Steps for Life back into the workplace. Each one has chosen to demonstrate their commitment — as a community and a brand — to preventing workplace tragedies and supporting individuals and families after such a loss. It’s a commitment that is highlighted in the weeks leading into and out of the walk, and that endures in the shared experience of co-workers committed to supporting the event with promotion, fundraising, volunteering, and participation.

So, if Steps for Life sounds like the kind of event your organization can get behind, take a look at the sponsorship opportunities available for 2024 — ranging from $250 Stepping Forward sponsorship to a $2000 Champion level. (Or if you’re thinking bigger, join us as a national sponsor!)
