Steps for Life Community Sponsors: Change of plans in light of COVID-19

Given the situation with regard to the spread of COVID-19 across Canada, and the uncertainty over the coming weeks and months, it would be inappropriate to hold our traditional Steps for Life – Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy events as community gatherings. Therefore, Threads of Life has made the decision to alter our Steps for Life plan to ensure the health and safety of all participants, volunteers and staff.

We will be encouraging all of our participants to hold their personal Steps for Life event/walk. Perhaps that means a solo walk in the woods, a ride on an exercise bike, doing yoga, or it may mean a small family or team get-together — provided you can maintain safe social distancing. We are excited to see all of the different ways our participants display their support. We will seek out additional ways to profile and recognize our community sponsors.

As a partner with Threads of Life, you are vital to our work.Our programs are available to our families at no cost and this is only possible through your generous support.Threads of Life continues to grow; we are currently providing our support programs to over 2,900 family members across the country. We hope you will continue to support the families of Threads of Life and our efforts to create awareness of prevention. However, if you are unable, and require a refund of your Steps for Life sponsorship contribution, please let me know.

On behalf of the families we serve, thank you for your ongoing support. Together we are achieving Threads of Life’s mission:

To help families heal through a community of support and to promote the elimination of life-altering workplace injuries, illnesses and deaths.
