OUR EVENT HAS A NEW DATE!
Life Steps Foundation proudly presents its first Every Day is Earth Day 5k Run/Walk/Hike/Bike virtual benefit event. All proceeds from the event will benefit the work we do with children who may be diagnosed with learning delays or developmental disabilities, as well as adults with developmental disabilities and seniors.
Life Steps Foundation Group, which includes all our programs, is planning this event. Our Children and Family Services program works to maximize the development of infants and toddlers (birth to 5 years old), who have or are at risk for developmental delays, and educate and support their parents in strengthening parent/child relationships. The Adult Services programs empower individuals to become involved in their life management, make informed choices, and participate in self-advocacy. Our service model recognizes the unique challenges that people with developmental disabilities encounter and our programs address them all, from independent living and personal fulfillment to parenting and family preservation. Our Senior Homemaker Program provides personal care services like assistance with laundry, meal preparation, and bathing and dressing, to older adults over the age of 60 who reside in San Luis Obispo County, City of Lompoc, and City of Santa Maria Valley.
This virtual event is open to everyone. You can walk, run, bike, or hike to complete the race event. We will not able to socialize and finish the race together this year but in participating in the event you will be making a difference in the lives of the individuals we serve. All proceeds from this event go towards programs for our participants and purchasing much needed PPE equipment for them due to COVID-19 pandemic. Life Steps Foundation has supported our programs, staff, and participants with our resources but we still need support.
