United We Can Make a Change!

Over the past two years the ASMBS Foundation has held a national step challenge to raise awareness of obesity in America. 2017 marks the third year of this challenge, and we are excited to have your support in sharing our mission with individuals all over the country. 

This year we will hold a 24-hour challenge on October 31st with the goal of reaching 50 million steps, and raising 20 thousand dollars.

NEW THIS YEAR! 
Turn Your Pennies Into Steps.
Your fundraising efforts and donations will also contribute to our step goal this year. Every penny you raise will count as ONE STEP in the challenge and go towards your personal and/or your team's step count. 

Get a head start by registering today and start fundraising!
