STEP 2 IT Havering 5K Run

Organised by Grove & Dean, the STEP2IT Havering 5K run was first created in 2017 to help raise funds for our chosen charity ‘First Step’ and aimed to bring our community together in a fun and friendly event held locally at Raphael’s Park, Romford.

The 2018 STEP2IT Havering 5K run was bigger and better than ever before, together with the help of our supporters, we raised over £5,500 for First Step.

A huge thank you to everyone who participated and showed their support for First Step, we couldn’t have done it without you.

2019 will see the return of the STEP2IT 5K race and we are sure it will be another amazing fund-raising event for First Step!

All information will be announced early next year so be sure to keep an eye out across our social platforms.

More on First Step

2018 has been a very special year for the First Step charity as they have celebrated their 30th anniversary. Over the last 30 years, the First Step charity have helped to provide the best possible environment to support local families and enable their young children with special needs and/or disabilities to maximise their individual potential.

Grove & Dean understand the difference that vital donations make to families at a time of crisis when they feel there is nowhere to turn.
