 Steps for SOS  is a fundraising event. This year our goal is to raise $100,000 to support foster kids at SOS Florida. We need your help to make it happen. Once you register, you'll  automatically receive a complimentary fundraising page. Just login and start sharing your  page with friends and family.
Not sure if you can fundraise? It's easy. We'll send you emails before the event to help you along or check out our resources page for ideas, tips and tools. Remember every dollar you raise makes a world of difference to our foster kids.
