The Wesley Foundation to host annual “Share A Step” Virtual Fundraiser

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Wesley Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Wesley Community, will be holding its sixth annual “Share A Step” virtual fundraiser beginning Friday Sept. 22 through Thursday, Sept. 28.

The weeklong fitness initiative offers participants the opportunity to raise funds for The Wesley Community’s Life Enrichment Program, which provides social and therapeutic activities tailored to each Wesley resident.

Competitors of all ages and fitness levels are invited and encouraged to work toward a fitness goal, such as running or walking one mile per day, completing a bike ride around the neighborhood, a run on the treadmill or virtually traveling the distance of a popular local trail.

Participants are asked to track and log their progress, take pictures of each exercise and tag it on Facebook and Instagram with #shareastep to show their progress and motivate others to stay the course.

“The Wesley Community is thrilled to once again kick off “Share A Step,” which is not only a much-needed fundraiser to support the health and well-being of our residents, but also a great way for people to stay active,” said The Wesley Community CEO J. Brian Nealon in a press release. “We encourage individuals and teams of all ages and fitness levels, locally and nationwide, to participate.”

 This year, “Share A Step” donations will support the Life Enrichment program at Wesley Health Care Center. The initiative provides an array of services focused on improving quality of life and well-being of residents. This is achieved through customized programs that pursue the interests and passions of each individual, while guiding them through such challenges of life as intellectual and physical disabilities.

 There are several ways for the local community to join in: By registering as a participant; by registering as a team, friends or colleagues, and challenging other teams; by becoming a sponsor or making a personal monetary donation.
