Step Up for Stepping Strong

Step Up for Stepping Strong is presented by Cigna in partnership with The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at Brigham Health with support from media sponsor WCVB.

This May, Brigham Health, The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation, and Cigna are uniting Greater Boston in a challenge to take 100 million steps in support of trauma survivors to mark the fifth anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Participation is free and easy. Simply download the MoveSpring app, choose your daily steps goal (below), create a profile (org code: stepup18), and connect your device or smartphone to automatically track your progress.

When Greater Boston reaches 100 million steps, Cigna will make a $100,000 donation to fuel trauma research and care at The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Established by survivors of the Boston Marathon bombings, the center brings multidisciplinary experts together to fuel trauma research and care for civilian and military heroes who suffer from traumatic injuries.

Sign up to be part of a movement that is bringing hope and healing to trauma survivors. Every step you take during the month of May, National Trauma Awareness Month, will bring awareness to the need for trauma innovation and care.

By achieving your daily steps goal, you will be entered in to a weekly drawing to win fitness prizes like a Fitbit Blaze smartwatch or Dick’s Sporting Goods gift cards.

Winners will be announced each Monday during the challenge so be sure to open the app and sync your device daily!

We are partnering with MoveSpring, which integrates with Fitbit, Jawbone, Garmin, Misfit, Apple Watch, Google Fit and Withings devices to automatically track and sync your daily activity. No fitness tracker? No problem! You can connect your Android or iPhone 5s or newer to track your steps.
