Taking steps for Sunshine Coast charity raises more than $70,000

We’re not quite sure how many steps it took but the recent "Steps for STEPS" fundraiser sure achieved some great results!

The Express Print & Mail team joined 92.7 MIX FM, other Sunshine Coast businesses, schools and community members for the March 2021 walk to raise funds for STEPS Pathway College.

The college offers life-changing experiences for young people with a disability or autism, delivered online, through day classes or in residence. It provides a safe and supportive environment where participants can learn practical skills such as communication, healthy living, employment, residential living and technology.

Walking from Maroochydore to Caloundra

Starting at the 92.7 MIX FM radio station in Maroochydore, students and community members walked 20 kilometres to the college premises in Caloundra.

Express Print & Mail was a major supporter of the event, pitching in $3000 and joining the group for the section between Kawana Shopping World and Sunshine Coast Stadium.

EPM General Manager Wendy Chadwick said the college provided important opportunities for young people with disabilities to develop independent living skills.
 

“STEPS Pathway College really makes a difference to young people’s lives by offering them a chance to learn at their own pace and achieve their goals."

"Express Print & Mail is proud to be a supporter of this Australia-first initiative and we are absolutely thrilled with the final results of the fundraiser," Wendy said.

The event raised a total of $72,919.45 in one day!
