Every day in Canada, three workers lose their lives on the job, leaving more than 1,000 families to mourn their loved ones after a workplace tragedy each year.
Threads of Life is an association that supports the healing journey of families who have suffered from a workplace fatality, traumatic life-altering injury or occupational disease.
Each spring, the association holds a five-kilometre walk to raise funds that support affected families. Steps for Life 2021 - Winnipeg will be different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can plan your own walk with your household members or participate in any manner that respects local public health guidelines. A virtual opening ceremony will take place on Sunday, May 2. Details, including the time of the ceremony, will be announced at a later date.
Please visit stepsforlife.ca for more information or to register for the walk.
