If it were two years ago, you couldn't convince Connor Archer that a double digit figure would be possible. "Achieving that much money is a challenge, and it takes a lot of support from the community" said Archer.
Since the project's establishment in 2014, the total is now over $28,000, and close to approaching $30,000. $18,600 has been donated to local programs that help young children with challenges. Several other project's have taken place with the other funds, and the growth of the scholarship fund is impressive.
Archer wants to thank the local businesses for their tremendous support. The first year, there were 13 sponsors. Last year, there were 26 sponsors. This year, the project has collected 52 sponsors, and continues to seek businesses to support the project in other ways.
The project is not only about donating money to organizations. Projects such as the Green House Nursery School Sensory Gardens started in 2012, the technology initiative project at the school, 'One Word' Challenge videos with local schools, and so much more. This has truly demonstrated what the project is all about, and why the Courageous Steps Project continues to grow.
