About Step Up For Valley

The Valley Hospital Foundation's Step Up For Valley is a virtual week-long fitness challenge to get our community to move, have fun, and raise money for the construction of The Valley Hospital in Paramus.

Upon registration, participants will have the opportunity to create their own fundraising pages for the event and will earn points for fundraising, engaging through social media, recruiting other participants, and, of course- getting those steps in through walking or running. The point leader board will be updated throughout the weeks leading up to and throughout the event and a variety of prizes will be awarded! 

Participants will record their activity between Sunday, July 17th through Saturday, July 23rd. (Participants can also use Strava via a free account [no subscription is necessary] to automatically record and update their activity.) 

PRIZES!

We know you are joining us because you care about our community and believe in the construction of The Valley Hospital in Paramus, but prizes are really awesome too!

All registrants will be entered to win a "door prize" of either a Hydro Flask 32 oz. wide mouth straw with lid, or a Stanley 40 oz. Adventure Quencher Tumbler. There will be 20 door prizes drawn at random throughout the week of the event. 

Sponsorship Group Prizes

For individuals participating as part of a Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze level sponsorship group, prizes are as follows. 

Every team will have a first place winner eligible for prizes based on the sponsorship level they participate in:

Platinum: Choice of Peloton Bike or Echelon Reflect 40 Fitness Mirror along with a two month family membership to Valley Health Lifestyles at The Valley Center for Health and Wellness

Gold: Choice of Normatec Pulse 2.0 Leg Recovery System or a Yeti Tundra Haul Hard Cooler with Wheels

Silver: Choice of Peloton Guide or a Garmin 245 GPS Running Smart Watch

Bronze: Choice of a $200 Lululemon gift card or a Theragun Mini Percussive Therapy Device

Overall Winners (highest number of points on the overall Leader Board) 

First Place: Choice of a Peloton Bike or an Echelon Reflect 40 Fitness Mirror along with a two month family membership to Valley Health Lifestyles at The Valley Center for Health and Wellness

Second and third place: Choice of a Normatec Pulse 2.0 Leg Recovery System, a Yeti Tundra Haul Hard Cooler on Wheels, or a two month family membership to Valley Health Lifestyles at The Valley Center for Health and Wellness

Fourth through tenth place: Choices of a Peloton Guide, Garmin 245 GPS Running Smart Watch, $200 Lululemon gift card, a Theragun Mini Percussive Therapy Device, or a two month family membership to Valley Health Lifestyles at The Valley Center for Health and Wellness

The Valley Health System Department Team with the most points will win pizza lunch for their department (or equivalent).

Rules & Considerations:

  • For the top ten prizes, only activities calculated through Strava (not self-reported) are eligible to win.
  • Participants are only eligible to win one Sponsorship Prize or an Overall Winner Prize.  If a participant qualifies to win both a Sponsorship Prize and an Overall Winner Prize, the winning participant may select their prize from the applicable options. There will not be any “runner up” prizes in these instances.

GOALS!

Our goal is to raise $75,000 and complete 100 miles of walking and running together during the week of July 17th.

Participants will have the ability to set their own personal goals, too! Do your best and have fun and don't forget to have fun along the way. ​

Why Participate?

Step Up For Valley event chair and grateful patient, Jeff Seidler, along with his family, invite you to join us for this fun and meaningful opportunity.

When you or someone you love is sick or in need of healthcare, you are at your most vulnerable. That is why the unparalleled clinical expertise and second-to-none patient experience at the Valley Hospital is essential to our community.

Coming through the doors at Valley, you know that you are in the best of hands- with clinical care that rivals larger academic and urban medical centers, and an extraordinary level of compassion and personal attention often missing in today's competitive healthcare landscape.

Valley seeks to preserve and expand its impact in the region, and to ensure that it can continue to meet the needs of future generations by building a new campus in Paramus. With 372 single-bed patient rooms, we are creating a more private healing environment for patients and their families. Our Emergency Department will expand to 72 individual treatment rooms.

This major investment in the future of healthcare provides an opportunity for our entire community to join together in reaching our $125 million campaign goal so that we can continue to effectively serve, care for, and transform our region. 

Thank you for your support and participation!
