#Steppingintoaction21 is a fundraiser promoting health and wellness amongst our Federation family.
The National Federation of the Blind Arizona is gearing up for its second virtual State Convention. This Labor Day weekend will surely be days you don’t want to miss being together with your NFB Arizona family! The state affiliate is doing a fundraiser for members interested in promoting health and wellness during the four-day virtual convention. We would love to hear how members across the state and the country are getting up and stepping indoors or outdoors while participating in our virtual convention this year! #steppingintoaction21 is being promoted on the NFBAZ Affiliate Facebook page right now, please feel free to share your steps throughout the convention along with the hashtag.
This fundraiser is a little fun competition to see who can get the most steps in during a virtual convention and raise some money for the NFB AZ. Enter as a step competitor or have a sponsor donate towards your steps. Once you enter your name as a competitor in the step challenge, your name can be typed in for a sponsor to donate $1.00 for every 1000 steps you take during the three days of the virtual convention. All they need to do is type your name, a payment method, and a minimum donation of $5.00; if they would like to donate more they may do so as well. In order to participate as a step competitor, we ask that you predict how many steps you think you will take or challenge yourself to take during the convention. You can have sponsors donate $1.00 for every 1000 steps you plan on taking or you can donate towards your own steps.
The winner of the first ever virtual step challenge is the person who has walked the most steps!
The first-place winner will receive an Amazon gift card for $30.
The second-place winner will receive an Amazon gift card for $20.
The third-place winner will receive an Amazon gift card for $10.
We look forward to your hashtags on Facebook! We’ve got this! #Steppingintoaction21
