Steps for Life: Support Families Affected by Workplace Tragedy on May 5th

Release Date:  Mar 11, 2013

Sign up for or support one of 34 walks taking place on May 5, on behalf of Threads of Life, a national Canadian charity providing support programs and services to families affected by a workplace fatality, life-altering injury or occupational disease. Twenty of these 5-km walks take place in Ontario alone.

All proceeds from the walks support the charity’s Family Support Program. The program provides grieving families with access to

  • trained family members who offer one-on-one peer support to families affected by a workplace tragedy
  • regional family forums
  • a quarterly newsletter

Unable to participate directly? Threads of Life offers an “adopt-a-walker” program.
