Kohl’s Donates $50,000 to Children’s Hospitals Across the Nation Through Associate Step Challenge


 Kohl’s associates take more than 412 million steps to support their local children’s hospitals.

Kohl’s associates nationwide were invited to participate in Step Forward for Families, a companywide active and well-being challenge supporting children’s hospitals across the nation.

Step Forward for Families was a step challenge that grouped Kohl’s associates into teams according to their geographic region. At the end of the month-long challenge, the three teams with the highest average step count won monetary donations to split across their local children’s hospitals. In total, Kohl’s associates donated $50,000 to hospitals nationwide.
