The Courageous Steps Project recently held its' 2nd Annual Masquerade for Awareness on Saturday March 30th at the Morgan Hill Event Center in Hermon.
With a turnout of approximately 230 people, it easily surpassed last year's total.
"Everyone seemed to have an awesome time" said founder & executive director Connor Archer. "This event has allowed us to expand our efforts and has allowed our overall organization to take that next step forward" added Archer.
Archer would also like to add that the event would not be possible without the sponsors, volunteers, and supporters.
Registration for the 2020 Masquerade for Awareness will be open this fall. However, because of the turnout, we have a new event in store for later in 2019.
"Because of all the support we received, we decided to launch an event called Costumes & Cocktails" said Archer. He goes onto say that this event will be a great fall event giving those to go out and have a fun night during the Halloween season. Registration is OPEN and can be accessed through our Facebook page!
The Courageous Steps Project recently awarded a donation to 10 schools worth a total of $2,500. Each school received $250 from playing in our 3rd Annual Unified Basketball Fun-Day in March.
Throughout the end of March and early April, The Courageous Steps Project awarded these donations from schools all over the Eastern Maine region.
We are already looking forward to the 2020 Unified Basketball Fun-Day. More information to be released later this year!
The Courageous Steps Project's 6th Annual Walk-Run is less than only 1 month away! Join us on Sunday May 19th for a fun afternoon of walking, running, and other fun for a great cause!
This event, dedicated to the late Dylan McInnis, a young boy who lived with the challenges of Autism. Dylan was gone from us too soon due to a congenital heart defect back in 2016. Through this event, we want to now honor his life and share his story with others so they are inspired to take their own steps.
"This is a great event for everyone to be apart of" said founder & executive director Connor Archer. "The atmosphere makes it a great experience for everyone, and is a great time for everyone to connect and show their support for our efforts" added Archer.
The event will take place from 1-4PM. A bounce house, inflatable obstacle course, slap shot game, and other activities will take place on the infield, along with the walk & run portions. Spencer's Ice Cream truck will be there from 11:30am-4:30pm selling ice cream. 20% of those sales will benefit children and young adults with developmental challenges.
