From September 14 to October 12 2017, Steps for Change participants walked in solidarity with women and children in Nepal and Vietnam who need better access to health services and nutrition.

Together, we took more than 6 million steps and raised over $14,000!

Participants stepped in Canada, Nepal, India and Switzerland to raise funds and awareness for HealthBridge’s Saving lives of mothers and children in Nepal and Vietnam. Along the way, we learned about the reality of maternal and child health in both countries, and saw how local health providers make sure every mother and child not only survives—but thrives.

Next year, we hope to make an even bigger impact. Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know about Steps for Change 2018.
