We are springing forward into a brighter 2021 with our Steps for SOS Virtual 5K Run/Walk
Gather your core group and head outside as you raise awareness and money to help foster children build promising futures.
During our virtual 5k run/walk event on Saturday May 15th, we are moving for a brighter future for the foster children at SOS Children's Villages.
Going virtual means that you can include family, friends, coworkers that could not otherwise participate in the event because they are out of state. It's a great way to bring others to a cause that is close to your heart.
It is only through the caring support of people like YOU
that our Steps for SOS 5K Run/Walk has continued to grow over the years. Your support of our Steps for SOS Virtual 5K Run/Walk event allows foster children to realize their WILDEST dreams!
