Special Events for Stepping Stones
Stepping Stones hosts a variety of special events each year, to benefit life-changing programs for people with disabilities in Greater Cincinnati! Since 1963, we have enabled children and adults with disabilities to build independence and fully participate in their communities.
Stepping Stones is a nonprofit United Way partner agency. Join us at one of our signature special events and raise funds for life-changing programs that truly improve lives.
