Every Step Counts May 2-8, 2021
Take 26,000 steps for 26,000 kids!
Why 26,000 steps?
1 in 5 children/youth have a treatable mental health condition and with 130,000 children and youth living in Waterloo Region, that means about 26,000 need help. AND the pandemic has increased those numbers!
So this Children's Mental Health Week, your steps will count more than ever.
Lutherwood's 2021 Steps for Kids will take place May 2-8.
Join us from your local neighbourhoods, parks or trails to show your support and raise funds and awareness for children's mental health programs at Lutherwood.
Register as an individual or create a team to maximize the fun! Teams can participate together or apart and combine their distances to complete the challenge – whatever works best for you!
Participate however you prefer! – walk, run or wheel!
Choose your challenge: The 2021 Steps for Kids has three different challenges to pick from -choose one or do all three! Feel free to walk, run, wheel, or row your boat for 5, 10 or 20 kilometers! (Did you know that 26,000 steps are approximately 20 kilometers?) The goal is distance, not speed – take your time, you have a whole week!
Don’t forget to upload your progress as you go so your efforts will be reflected on our map below and you can show everyone all of your hard work! You will even receive badges of progress as you move through your challenge.
