If you're looking for a great way to support a fantastic cause and get some exercise at the same time, mark your calendars for Sunday, May 21st. The Courageous Steps Project’s 10th Annual Walk-Run Challenge is taking place at Old Town High School's Victory Field.

This year's Walk-Run is a bit different than in the past - instead of registration fees, the organizers are accepting suggested donations.

Before the Walk-Run, there will be a special ceremony at 12 pm in Old Town High School's Mackenzie Gymnasium that you won't want to miss. And feel free to invite all the folks that you know  - the organizers encourage everyone to come out and show their support.

The Courageous Steps Project is a local non-profit organization that was founded in 2014 by Connor Archer. Their mission is to create a fun, nurturing, play-based environment for every child, and to channel resources to enhance their success in school and in life. The organization supports a wide range of initiatives, including sensory learning, charitable giving, a scholarship fund, a wishlist initiative, and a back-to-school drive campaign.

Since its founding, The Courageous Steps Project has supported over 35 programs in Eastern Maine, involving over 1,000 individuals in awareness campaigns, and donating school supplies to nearly three dozen schools in the area. By participating in the 10th Annual Walk-Run Challenge and making a suggested donation, you can help The Courageous Steps Project to continue to grow and expand their initiatives and make a difference in the lives of children and young adults in our community.

So whether you're a seasoned runner or just looking for a fun day out with the family, the 10th Annual Walk-Run Challenge is the place to be on May 21st.
