Steps to Cure Sarcoma – FAQ

How do I fundraise?

Once you’re signed up, there are plenty of great ways to fundraise:

  • Share your online fundraising page with friends and family via email, Facebook or Twitter to let them know you are participating in the Steps to Cure Sarcoma challenge.
  • Tell your story – You may know someone that has faced sarcoma or you may be doing this because it is a great cause and you want to make a difference. You have a story to tell.
  • Encourage your friends to sign up and create a dream team! As a virtual event, your team can participate in different parts of the country or the world.
  • Does your employer have a matching program? Do they support efforts for happier, healthier employees? See if they’ll match the funds that you raise or donate.
  • Just ask! Your friends and family like to support you and the things that matter to you. Ask them to give just a little and watch it all add up, just like taking that first step!

How can I hit my steps target?

There are plenty of ways you can hit your daily target - rack up the numbers by walking all or part of your commute, taking the stairs at work, going for a family walk on the weekend, or even taking the dog on a few extra walks this month.

What if I miss a day or more?

This is your challenge, set a schedule that works for you. The goal is to raise awareness by taking on the effort to hit your goal.

How can I track my steps?

Use a pedometer or tracker that will count your steps for you. Most phones have lots of free apps to track your steps each day. If you know the distance of your everyday walk, you can use conversion tools on the internet to help turn your miles into steps.

How do we report our progress or log our steps?
