During this time of the COVID-19 epidemic, we wanted to find a way to band together as a group of individuals, work towards a common goal, and do some good for the world. We came up with an idea to start a Step Challenge to promote healthy living but also work towards a greater purpose.
The Step Challenge that we are promoting will take place from July 1 to July 30. Our goal is to combine to walk 2604 Miles (which is the distance between Pittsburgh, PA and Palo Alto, CA) in 30 Days. We also wanted to bring awareness to a great charitable organization called World Central Kitchen!
WCK is working across America to safely distribute individually packaged, fresh meals in communities that need support – for children and families to pick up and take home, as well as delivery to seniors who cannot venture outside. WCK is now active in dozens of cities providing over 160,000 fresh meals every day. WCK is also now activating restaurants to help meet this demand by providing jobs for their staff and meals for those in need. #ChefsForAmerica is making a key connection between people who need meals and restaurant workers and drivers who need to earn a living. WCK is also working to provide meals to healthcare and hospital workers that are on the front lines with the COVID-19 epidemic.
If you can, please donate today towards this great cause! We will keep everyone updated on where we are in the United States as we continue to step through our Challenge!
