Steps for Life – Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy

What is Steps for Life?

Steps for Life – Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy is a 5 km fundraising walk to help support families who have suffered from a life-altering injury, occupational disease or workplace fatality. It’s the flagship fundraising event for Threads of Life, a national registered charity dedicated to supporting families of workplace tragedy. Threads of Life provides Canadian families with a community of support and healing. The walk raises awareness about the importance of workplace health and safety to all Canadians. Let’s work together to prevent other Canadians from being injured or killed on the job.
