Thank you for joining us for our 7th annual

LITTLE STEPS, BIG DREAMS 5k WALK/RUN

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

We are excited to announce that we exceeded our fundraising goal of $40,000 at the 7th annual “Little Steps Big Dreams” 5K event, and we had a record turnout of nearly 300 people!

We were greatly honored to have Vie Athletics as our Presenting Sponsor this year! Many Vie sisters showed up to show their support and add an extra little dose of friendly competition!

Our day wouldn’t have been complete without the presence of our friends and faithful supporters. Roy from Roy L Sounds provided music and our A/V needs. Jim from Evidence Photography and Design took photos for us! Also, a huge thank you to our fabulous and fun emcee, Alysanne, who was back on the mic for the second year in a row. 

Thank you also to BuDu Racing for generously donating our start and finish line, as well as a race clock and timing system for our runners!

Also, one of the highlights at our event was a beautiful fall photo station, donated by our friends at Scholz Farm. They provided all of the colorful pumpkins, gourds, and corn stalks that created a fun backdrop for photos with friends!

Again, thank you to all the donors, sponsors, volunteers, and teams who made this event possible! We hope to see you all again next year!

 

A huge thank you to this year's event sponsors!

Looking back at last year's event:

 
 
 
 

Celebrating the 6th annual “Little Steps, Big Dreams” fundraising 5k Walk/Run!

Over 200 showed up, in spite of a less than stellar weather forecast, to support Step By Step and spend time together, in the great outdoors! 

We also invited the Puyallup Food Bank to fundraise alongside us at this year’s event. We have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with the Food Bank and were thrilled to have them join us. We have offered them storage space and a venue to sort donations, and they have helped provide food, and occasionally diapers and baby items, for some of our clients. They also hosted a free bbq at the event this year! We are so thankful for their support and encouragement. 

The Top Fundraising Team this year was the “Super Hunger Heroes” team, raising $6,295. The second Top Team was the “Northenders” team, which raised $5,390. Altogether, nearly $40,000 was raised to support Step By Step and the Puyallup Food Bank and support healthy moms, babies, and families in our community.

Roy, from Roy L Sounds, donated his time and equipment to provide music and sound for the event. Roy makes this event so much more fun, and we are thankful for his faithful support of Step By Step!

THANK YOU!
 To all the donors, sponsors, volunteers, and teams who made this event possible, thank you!
We hope to see you all again next year!
