What is Steps for Starlight?
During this time of social distancing, isolation and staying home, we’ve all been moving less and less. Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada wants to help motivate you to get moving, and while you are getting active, you could be helping seriously and chronically ill children. Steps for Starlight is an easy way to get involved and make a difference – sign up as an individual, family or even with your co-workers!
It’s easy to register
, and once you are ready with your target goal, you can have friends and family pledge your steps. There will be prizes and challenges along the way, but the real winners will be the children you are helping.
Let’s get moving! The campaign will run for the whole month of June! Don't forget to 'attend' Steps for Starlight on Facebook
for updates and fun challenges!
Where are your donations going?
During this time of social distancing, seriously ill children can’t go outside and play and be distracted like healthy children can. People like our Starlight children are the ones that are being highlighted in the news. They have pre-existing conditions and are exponentially at risk as they are strongly immunocompromised.
Starlight has been helping seriously ill children and their families for over 30 years. Now in these desperate times of Covid-19 and our children’s isolation, we need YOU more than ever! We have created an emergency program called Play From Home Packs.
Starlight needs to ship Play From Home Packs to thousands of seriously ill children and their families across the country. The package will contain board games, crafts and other interactive activities. Many of these will involve a national group activity where all children will be logging on to Facebook Live with special guests including our own Captain Starlight to join in the fun.
All of the funds raised through Steps for Starlight will be going towards our Play From Home Packs!
