2020 Virtual FitSteps for Life Walk-A-Thon

Our race website: https://runsignup.com/Race/TX/Anycity/FitStepsforLifeWalkathon

Every mile counts. Every dollar counts.

It is just about time for our annual FitSteps for Life Walk-a-Thon! And just like everything else this year, it will be a little bit different.

As with all our current programs and services, we have decided to turn this year’s Walk-a-Thon “virtual.” This means, you can walk or run anytime and anywhere! But wait, there’s more!

We have been challenged to walk 20,000 miles and raise $20,000 by November 20th. So, we need your help!

Starting October 20, 2020, we want to challenge you to personally complete a total of 20 miles and raise $20 to support FitSteps for Life.  Your miles and dollars will count towards our collective organizational goal as together we raise funding and awareness for our vital work. Whether you are a walker, runner, or something in between – we hope that you will join us as we do our best to move past 2020!

During these uncertain times, it is more crucial than ever that we meet our fundraising goal of $20,000 to ensure that all patient services are on track to be fully funded. Although this year looks a bit differently, your support has never been more essential. Lace up your sneakers and hit your local neighborhoods, tracks, and parks to walk and show your love for FitSteps! Share your photos or videos of you reaching your personal goal and participating in the Virtual Walkathon 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!
