STEMSTEP5K MISSION STATEMENT
We are a not-for-profit grassroots organization promoting fitness in our community and with families & children by gathering together for an annual 5k Run/Family Walk & Kid Dash.
Our goal is to contribute 100% of our fundraising efforts to support S.T.E.M. programs & athletic clubs at St. Helen School.
Let’s kick the winter blues, reconnect with nature, spring into action. We aim to support programs that keep our kids competitive both physically and academically.
We are a vibrant community of everyday people with a few simple themes in common
1. Exude good will towards ALL
2. Recognize the NEEDS of others
3. Promote HEALTH
4. Support PRODUCTIVITY
5. Give others a PLACE TO BE
Our paths of life, experience and expertise may vary, but it is undeniable we crossed paths for a reason. Knowing you can make a difference is powerful and we intend to put that power to use.
100% of our fundraising efforts benefit St. Helen Catholic School with focus on S.T.E.M. and Athletic Programming.
