Harvard University Employees Credit Union is participating in a month-long steps challenge for The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital—and we hope you will join us!
As part of a community-wide effort to show support for trauma survivors, HUECU will join companies from across the Greater Boston area to take 500 million steps together this September. When the community reaches 500 million total steps, presenting sponsor Cigna will make a $100,000 donation to The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Established by Boston Marathon bombing survivors, the Stepping Strong Center fuels trauma research and care to benefit civilians and military personnel worldwide who have suffered from the devastation of traumatic injuries and events.
We invite all HUECU members to join our Step Up for Stepping Strong team by simply downloading the free to your smartphone to automatically track your steps and contribute to the community goal or signing up online. You may sync your smart watches to track your steps, but a smart watch is not required to participate.
All participants will receive health, wellness, and nutrition information from Brigham Health and Cigna, and be eligible for weekly drawings for gift cards!
We hope you, your family, and your friends will join our HUECU community as we come together to Step Up for Stepping Strong this September. It is a wonderful way to show solidarity and support for trauma survivors while stepping your way to better health.
Participation is free, and you can join our team through September 10th.
