Steps 4 Students is a platform for schools in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston to raise funds for their specific needs.
Last year’s event drew nearly 12,500 participants and raised more than $1 million. Part of the funds were used to purchase new textbooks and technology, provide training opportunities for teachers, and update school facilities.
