Steps for STEPS 2024

 In Events, Our Stories, Past Events

In an uplifting show of community spirit and generosity, 92.7 Mix FM radio announcer hosts along with our STEPS Pathways College students, STEPS staff and supporters have raised a remarkable $64,233.57 for STEPS Pathways Charity.

On Friday 8th March, the students joined radio hosts Mark & Caroline and Todd & Sami and a group of dedicated walkers to take on an exhilarating 30km trek from Maroochydore to Caloundra raising money along the way from local businesses and the community.

STEPS Managing Director Carmel Crouch says the funds raised will help provide students at STEPS Pathways College with a life-changing experience, allowing them to dream bigger than they’ve ever dreamt before and creating a life with more independence than they ever thought possible.

“We know that people with a disability and autism can be more, do more and achieve more, and our graduating students are living proof of this,” says Carmel.

The 92.7 Mix FM hosts were equally pleased with the results from the day, including Mark Darin who stated, “It was such a pleasure to see all the smiling faces of the STEPS Pathways students. Except for the bits where I was walking, I didn’t like those bits. But the rest of the day was magnificent!”

“It was a big day, 30 kilometres was a long way to walk, and I was whinging most of the way, but the generosity of the coast made it worth our while,” shares Caroline Hutchinson, 92.7 MIX FM Breakfast Announcer.

Todd & Sami, 92.7 MIX FM Drive Announcers, share their sentiment.

“To watch our team at MIX and the team at STEPS give it their all made us so proud. What a wonderful and fun event for a wonderful local place that is helping colour the future of so many young Coasties.”

The incredible total of $64,233.57 is a testament to the Sunshine Coast community’s caring nature and  generosity.

“The money we raise at this year’s Steps for STEPS will help us give more young people with a disability and autism the opportunity to show the world what they’re capable of,” says Carmel.
