About the Event

This fundraising event brings communities together for a common goal – to help the millions of Canadians suffering from arthritis, osteoporosis and injury return to a life of mobility through bone and joint surgery.  

HOW?  
It’s as easy as 1-2-3:
1.         Grab your step tracker first thing in the morning. 
2.         Keep it with you all day and log your steps each day. 
3.         Add up your steps for the full five days.

WHERE?
At work, in your neighborhood, at the gym, around the block, take the stairs instead of the elevator, park further away from the entrance of the building, etc.

WHEN?
October 21-25, 2019
At the end of day five, total all steps walked and either submit them to your team captain, log in and enter them on your personal participant page or email the total to hhh@canorth.org .

HOW MANY STEPS MUST I WALK DAILY?
It is recommended that we walk 10,000 steps which is the equivalent of approximately 7.5 kms. We know that everyone's fitness level and ability to walk is different, and we just encourage you to walk as much as you comfortably can.

The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation is Canada's only charity dedicated solely to helping people build, maintain and restore their bone and joint health.  By advancing research, delivering public and patient education and fostering excellence of care, we strive to keep Canadians moving pain-free, longer and stronger.

The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation has helped thousands of Canadians through our patient education  resources, one-of-a-kind peer support program and research funding. In order to produce these much needed materials, we rely on the kindness and generosity of the public for donations and corporate support
.

Here’s why your donations matter:

  • Painful, restricted movement is isolating and surgery can be daunting,

  • Patients need to understand their role in their own best recovery,

  • Currently, tens of thousands of Canadians have to wait for surgery that will restore their mobility and independence,

  • People need to receive education and support in different ways, and

  • Helping people back to their lives and back to work benefits everyone.
