ARC, Inc. is hosting its second “Steps Towards Justice" Walk-a-thon! Join us the weekend of May 21 and 22 by hitting a trail near you or a location of your choice. You can participate on your own or with a group. For every half mile (1,000 steps) you walk, you'll be raising support for ARC, Inc.’s juvenile justice efforts. After the event, we'll be tallying up our collective steps and miles to see how far we've moved toward justice!
1. Complete the registration form at right.
2. Create your personal fundraising page or join a group fundraising page by clicking the "I Want To Fundraise For This" button on the Walk-a-thon campaign page.
3. Let family and friends know about your walk and direct them to your page or keep track of offline pledges using the pledge form. Donors can pledge a set amount or pledge an amount per half-mile (1,000 steps).
4. Walk, hike, run, bike, etc. on May 21 or 22 and count your steps or miles.*
5. Complete the Post-Walk-a-Thon Google Form to share your walk-a-thon pictures and your total miles or steps. Visit our celebration page during the week of May 23 to see where fellow participants were and our total steps.
*You can track this with a step counting device like a Fit Bit or an app on your phone, but if you prefer not to do either of those, just find out the total miles of your chosen activity. Each half-mile equals about 1,000 steps.
