The Wesley Foundation Invites Community To “Share A Step” During Annual Fitness Fundraiser

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community – a 37-acre non-profit senior living campus in Saratoga Springs – is asking Capital Region residents to take part in its fifth annual and virtual “Share A Step” fundraiser beginning Friday, June 24 through Thursday, June 30.

The weeklong fitness initiative offers participants the opportunity to raise funds for The Wesley Community while working toward a fitness-oriented goal, such as running or walking one mile per day or completing a 30-mile bike ride. New this year, and to commemorate Wesley’s 50th Anniversary, a 50-kilometer challenge is being introduced as a goal for distance for the week via walking, biking or running. However, goals at every level of fitness are encouraged to keep “Share A Step” fun and safe for everyone. 

During the event participants track their workouts, share their progress on the event website and social media while encouraging friends and family to support their efforts via a donation. Both teams and individuals are welcome to participate and prizes are awarded for goals achieved during the event. 

All donations generated through “Share A Step” will support completion of the second phase of renovations in the Springs Building of Wesley Health Care Center. Phase two of the project will create a contemporary, efficient and home-like environment on the buildings second, third and fourth floors. 

Registration for “Share A Step” is free. Individuals or teams interested in participating or making a donation should visit https://p2p.onecause.com/shareastep.
