30,000 Steps for Stroke logo


30,000 Steps for Stroke is a 4-week corporate employee engagement and awareness program designed to:

  • Increase awareness of stroke as a leading cause of death in the United States
  • Incorporate risk reduction activities into a participant's daily life
  • Raise funds to support National Stroke Association in its mission to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke

About 30,000 Steps for Stroke

Corporate employees will be encouraged to form competitive teams within their department, facility or region where each team member commits to taking steps to prevent stroke – 30,000 physical steps over four weeks. Beyond successfully completing their step goal as a group, team members will be asked to participate in peer-to-peer fundraising with a corporate minimum commitment of $30,000 to honor the organization's 30 years of service to the stroke community. This minimum commitment can be reached by a combination of employee peer-to-peer fundraising and corporate contribution. In support, National Stroke Association will provide:

  • Kickoff support including a two week online registration period, personalized/company branded peer-to-peer fundraising pages for each team, stroke education materials for employees, and program FAQ
  • Branded pedometers and t-shirts to all team members
  • Program partnership signage for facility use
  • Dedicated staff to support team member registration and peer-to-peer fundraising page creation
  • Peer-to-peer fundraising tips for success
