WELCOME TO THE SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES FLORIDA
“STEPS FOR SOS” 5K RUN/WALK and COLOR RUN
This year we took our basic 5K and made it lots more fun!
Please note the COLOR RUN is optional, this will be a separate course from the official 5K route of the event.
The Steps for SOS 5K and COLOR RUN raises funds and awareness to provide programs and services to ensure that foster children's lives are filled with hope and promise . Our goal is to raise $155,000 so that our children can continue to thrive. Join us throughout the campaign period by participating in fun contests with incentive prizes, learning about our mission through stories, mini kickoffs, and official Kickoff Event!

Runners will receive placement medals in the following categories based on a timed course.

ALL STAR LINEUP: 2024 Steps for SOS Event Chairs
"I have been affiliated with SOS Children's Villages FL for 9 years. As a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. it is part of our mission to serve the community. What I love about SOS is that they create a home for children and support them in providing shelter, activities and emotional support. I continue to help raise awareness and fundraise for their causes because it takes a village to raise children and SOS does so much with the funds that they receive."
"I am honored to be co-chair for my first time for the Steps for SOS 5K and Color Run. SOS Children's Villages FL is important to me because making sure kids are safe and love is the basis of what they do. There are few things more impactful in the life of a child than knowing they are loved and cared for and that there are people they can count on. SOS gives kids that didn't have an easy start the resources they need as well as the love of a family."
