Next steps for Steps for Life — Your Way!

We may be ISOLATING but we don’t have to be ISOLATED. Traditionally, Steps for Life-Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy is held as a community walk. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that won’t be possible this year, but it’s more crucial than ever to connect with family, community and with what’s important to you. We’ve changed Steps for Life 2020, to help you do all that.

Steps for Life is an annual event in communities across Canada, focused on increasing awareness about the importance of workplace health and safety, and supporting those who’ve been affected by work-related fatalities, life-altering injuries and occupational disease. It serves as the primary fundraiser for the national charity Threads of Life.

To be part of Steps for Life 2020, just choose your own activity any time in May — it could be anything that complies with your local health guidelines: how about a kitchen Scrabble tournament, an hour of backyard birdwatching or a bike ride on an area trail? Register online, then use the hashtag #MyWhyMyWay to share the different WAYS you’re showing your support for Threads of Life families.

Registration is free — it’s all about participation, staying active, and connecting with others to promote workplace health and safety and to help those experiencing workplace tragedy.

Every working day, 3 families will receive the news that a loved one is not returning home from work that day. Their families, friends and co-workers will rally together to be there for one another.

Together we can raise funds to provide programs and services for
Canadian families who have suffered as a result of a workplace tragedy; educate our community
about the devastating ripple effects of each workplace tragedy; and promote a cultural shift to
improve health and safety in the workplace so that others will not experience a workplace fatality, traumatic life-altering injury, or occupational disease.

All proceeds from the walk go directly to Threads of Life family support programs (www.threadsoflife.ca) Anyone and everyone can take part in the walk! April 25th, registration is at 9:30am with opening remarks at 10:30am. If you can’t walk, you can contribute other ways such as Donating, becoming a partner or a volunteer.
