April is here, which means the Courageous Steps is less than 2 months away until it's 3rd annual Courageous Steps Walk-Run.
Many businesses have sponsored this year's event, with more to come in April, and the beginning of May. "The Step System for Businesses has really had an effect on donations from businesses for the Courageous Steps Project" said founder Connor Archer. "I believe that this will become huge within a couple years for the project" added Archer.
April will be mainly a planning month for the walk-run. Archer hopes to advertise the project, and the walk-run fundraiser down in D.C. for the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, where he hopes to get donations from people who feel the same way he does about helping others with challenges.
Besides getting donations, Archer's goal is to get more people at the fundraiser, including athletic teams around the area. Archer will be going around to schools, or sending information to schools about this year's walk-run event. "I believe this will help encourage teams to be at the event, and will increase overall fundraiser numbers" said Archer confidently.
Archer has also revealed that the school or business that brings the most group of students, will win a prize, that will be determined soon. This will provide an incentive for bringing many people to the fundraiser.
If you have any questions about the walk-run, or need registration forms, visit the walk-run page under the fundraisers tab. You can also email Connor Archer at: email@example.com.
