Steps of Hope

Thank you, volunteers, sponsors, performers, teams and individual walkers!

Thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors, performers, teams and individual walkers who participated in Steps of Hope 2015 at Southdale Center on March 1. Hundreds teamed up to raise money for the Minnesota autism community, visit with sponsors, gather information at the state's largest autism resource fair, and have FUN. Special thanks to KFAN's Dan Cole The Common Man for emceeing the stage show, KS95's Crisco for bringing the KS95 prize wheel and giving high-fives to the crowd, and Mudonna and Goldy Gopher for keeping everyone energized!
