The Step-A-Thon will consist of a 12-hour time period from 8amET to 8pmET where participants can record the steps that they take by using a mobile device or wearable (Apple Watch, FitBit, etc.).

Leading up to the event, participants will be reaching out to businesses or individuals who can commit to pledging a certain amount of money per step or give a general donation. Therefore, the number of steps taken will determine the amount of funds raised.
