Steps to Stability – June 7-12, 2021
Join the week-long challenge to log 50,000+ steps in support of youth overcoming homelessness on June 7-12, 2021 to kick off Pride Month!
Young people overcoming homelessness spend an average of 50 nights at Covenant House, and their paths to independence don’t follow a straight line. As you log your steps, you can follow along with just a few of these journeys, unlocking a new story at each 5,000 step milestone.
How does it help?
When you sign up, you can create a fundraising page to let friends and family know about your step challenge. Funds raised go directly to programs at Covenant House providing food, shelter, clothing, healthcare, education, legal aid, and loving care to youth facing homelessness.
Who can join?
Anyone, anywhere! Run or walk at your own pace on a treadmill, around your house, or through your neighborhood over the week. Track your steps on a fundraising page or using our app, working towards your goal or a shared family or team goal. And connect with a national community online or at a virtual meet-up (a different event will be held each night of the challenge!).
When is it?
June 7-12, 2021, to kick off Pride Month! LGBTQ+ youth are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than their peers. Throughout the week, we will hear from these youth, learn more about their steps to stability, and celebrate each of their unique journeys through stories and nightly events.
By taking a step outside, you can help youth overcoming homelessness take steps toward stability. Sign up now!
From individuals, to companies, to faith-based organizations, Covenant House needs your help! Unlike many volunteer opportunities, we want you to do what you love to do… just do it with our youth, either individually or with a group of your friends or co-workers.
