"Little Steps, Big Dreams" 5k Walk/Run

Thank you for joining us for this fun, family friendly event!


5th Annual "Little Steps, Big Dreams" 5k Walk/Run

Our 5th annual fundraising 5k Walk/Run on October 10th was super fun! Over 150 showed up, in spite of a little rain, to support Step By Step and spend time together in the great outdoors! We were thrilled to be able to host this year’s event from the Van Lierop Bulb Farm, which is conveniently located right across the street from the Puyallup Foothills Trail.

We have so many to thank for supporting this year’s event! We’d like to give a special thank you to the following event sponsors: Kanon Electric, HomeStreet Bank, Nordlie’s Family Dentistry, and Abbey Carpet & Flooring of Puyallup. Please support these great local businesses!

Also, every year, Roy from Roy L Sounds donates his time and equipment to provide music and sound for this event. Roy, we are so thankful for your faithful support. You make this event so much fun! We could not do it without you. 

The Puyallup Food Bank (thank you Shanna!) also helped us out this year, by donating snacks and beverages for the event. We also had a few new partnerships. Tanya, from TNT Espresso, came out with her espresso and donut truck, which not only made our coffee loving staff very happy, but she also donated proceeds back to Step By Step. And, last but not least, we’d like to thank the HealthSource of Federal Way group who set up a booth and gave free massages!

Our Top Fundraising Team was the “Rock and Roll” team which raised $4,145 to support Step By Step. Jean Meier was our Top Fundraising Step By Step Mom for the 3rd year in a row, raising $2,050!

Thank you to all our sponsors, volunteers, and participants who made this event possible. We hope to see you all again next year!
