Steps for SOS is a 5k Run/Walk event at beautiful Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek.

The scenic route includes tree-shaded paths and a stable for retired horses.

This is an excellent opportunity for families, friends, co-workers, and every one of all fitness

levels to come together, make a difference and help provide a better life for our children.

The route is certified and timed for runners, and allows for a pleasant morning stroll for those

who prefer a more leisurely pace.

Come out and visit our sponsor tents, enjoy complimentary breakfast,

awesome entertainment, face painting, a bounce house, and an award ceremony.

Every step you take brings our boys and girls one step closer to their dreams of success

and happiness.

 I am pleased to serve a Chair for this year’s event and look forward to having you join me
 and my family on November 4th. I consider myself fortunate to have the warm and loving  support of my wife Sly,  
 and  three children...JT, Chelsea, and Carsen.  Family is important to me and I have taken the lead on this event to give support to the community and provide an opportunity for a child to achieve his or her dreams. 

 I believe that if each person takes just one step to make a difference in the life of  a child, we are providing the foundation for a bright future.
