What is it?
Steps for CancerSupport is a fitness and fundraising challenge. Participants use the Pacer app to track their steps for 20 days to compete against others, beat their own fitness goals, and raise money for ESCA CancerSupport. All proceeds allow ESCA CancerSupport to provide free support services to people affected by cancer in Switzerland.
How does it work?
Participants register as an Open Team, Corporate Team, or as an Individual. Each team can consist of 2-10 members stepping from anywhere in the world. Corporate Teams benefit from brand exposure (contact us for more information).
Everyone tracks their progress through the Pacer app for 20 days to see who are the top teams and individuals. It is a competition for glory but also a time to beat personal step goals. It also makes a great teambuilding exercise for your company!
The challenge is open to all, regardless of fitness level, who are at least 16 years old on day 1 of the challenge.
How can I help fundraise?
Participants can fundraise by hosting an event, finding a personal sponsor, or simply encouraging friends and family to donate! Each participant will have access to a downloadable Fundraising Pack complete with ideas, tips, and graphics to share on social media.
