It’s time for the 2021 FitSteps for Life Walk-A-Thon! This year, in honor of the challenges faced and overcome over the last 20 years, we’ve decided to climb Everest! Sean Swarner, the keynote speaker at our upcoming 20th Anniversary luncheon knows a thing or two about climbing mountains. He is a two-time cancer survivor that has ascended the highest mountain on every continent, trekked to the North and South Poles, and completed the Hawaii Ironmon – all with one lung.
When scaling Everest, each climber will cover 40 miles from Base Camp to the summit. We’re challenging you to do the same. Accumulate 40 miles from September 1 – September 30, and raise $25 to support FitSteps for Life. You can walk, run, bike, swim, or elliptical your way to 40 miles…it all counts!  Your miles and dollars will bring us closer to our collective organizational goal as we cover 20,000 miles and raise $25,000.
Whether you walk in one of our FitSteps for Life centers, around your neighborhood, on a track, or attend a Park Day, remember that your support helps ensure that all of our patient services are fully funded. Share your photos or videos of you reaching your personal goal and participating in the Walk-A-Thon on Facebook for a chance to win some cool prizes! Everyone is invited to participate so get your friends and family to join you too! 
Stay tuned for more emails on how to sign up, join a team, and become a fundraiser. You can also pick up a mileage log and donor form inside your FitSteps for Life center. We are really excited for this year’s Walk-A-Thon and for our 20th Anniversary! Let’s climb Everest together!
“People are limited by their minds, not their bodies.  If you don’t think it’s possible – it’s not.”
