The Lighthouse Hunger Walk and SOS End Homelessness Now 5/K 10K have come together to form the "Steps for Hope" walk/run to end hunger and homelessness. It will be held on Sunday, August 4th, 2019 starting and finishing at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Southfield, MI.  The annual race has raised over $200,000 over the years to support individuals and families in housing programs, and is definitely an event you won't want to miss. 

Last year, hundreds of registered participants joined us at the start line for what was truly an inspiring morning.  This year, you can once again expect amazing volunteer support on the route, a delicious breakfast waiting (donations appreciated) for you when you cross the finish line and the opportunity to participate in family-friendly activities and attend the Celebration Ceremony after the the race.
