The Courageous Steps Project is working hard to continue planning this Spring's 3rd annual Courageous Steps Walk-Run event.
So far, in less than a month, we have two sponsors for this Spring's fundraiser. Van Syckle Kia donated $50 once again to this year's fundraiser, and Maine Savings Federal Credit Union donated $100 again. We also had $100 donated from a local resident in Old Town, ME.
We are waiting on more businesses to respond, and send in their donations, for this coming Spring's fundraiser. We also have some items to auction off from last year's fundraiser, that will go towards this year's fundraiser total.
If you are interested in donating, please contact Connor Archer at: email@example.com. We will not start registration for this year's fundraiser, until the end of March to early April.
The Courageous Steps Project would like to announce that we are starting a continuous Silent Auction. Please visit our Silent Auction page on our website, under Silent Auction.
If you have any questions about this, please contact Connor Archer at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Tuesday January 12th, founder Connor Archer traveled down I-95 to visit staff, and a class of 5th graders from a school within RSU #19. Archer made his presentation at the Nokomis Regional High School, in Newport.
Archer shared his story, and the Courageous Steps Project with that group of staff, and students that traveled from around the district area to see Archer say what he had to say.
Archer showed the 'One Word' video that he originally created this past year, and challenged all the schools in RSU #19 to a 'One Word' challenge. Staff and students accepted the challenge, as now different staff members from the different schools in the district will be beginning to create their own 'One Word' video.
Below is some video footage from the RSU #19 Autism group presentation. (VIDEO COMING SOON!)
The Courageous Steps Project is now accepting donations from businesses, in form of a sponsorship, and donations from anyone in the community. In less than a week, the Courageous Steps Project has received $300 of funds to go towards programs that help young children with challenges.
Over the past two years, the Courageous Steps Project has raised over $12,500, and with new donations coming in, we hope to soon reach a lot more than last year. It is because of the support from you, that makes the Courageous Steps Project continue to grow.
A sponsorships donation form & a copy of our Step System for businesses, are available for downloading below. All donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 1, Stillwater, ME 04489. Please make checks out to Connor Archer, and put in the memo: The Courageous Steps Project.

On Tuesday January 5th, the Courageous Steps Project founder Connor Archer, revealed the items as part of phase 2 of the Green House Nursery School Technology Expansion Project.
This phase included a projector, accessories for the projector, and two wireless keyboards for the iPads purchased as part of phase 1.
Director Lynn Faerber, and Classroom teacher Karen Thibault were there to receive the generous donation from the Courageous Steps Project's founder, and to have him give a tutorial about how to use the projector, and to answer any iPad questions that may of needed to be answered.
Archer hopes to begin the third phase of the technology expansion project later this year, as the phase will require large amounts of fundraising, and support from individuals in our local communities.

2016 has arrived, and we are getting right to work. The Courageous Steps Project has a lot planned for you this coming year ranging from fundraisers, projects, speaking engagements, and more.
To kick off the year, we would like to announce that we have already received donations for this coming Spring's fundraiser.
On Monday, businesses will come back to emails sent asking for their sponsorship for this Spring's fundraiser. Our hope is by getting this process started now, that we can raise more, and get more people involved with the fundraiser.
Along with our walk-run event this Spring, we have a couple of other mini fundraisers that will grab your interest. In March, we hope to host our 2nd Courageous Steps Benefit Dinner at the Old Town Governor's Restaurant. The date and time have yet to be determined, but please check back to find updates. We hope to partner with other organizations around our community, to do a small fundraiser with. This will help with all of our causes.
