Steps 4 Success


Helping our local student population with foot health and well being...

While social distancing

The Rotary Club of Santa Clara, whose motto is “Service Above Self”, is hosting its annual Steps 4 Success event to supply hundreds of pairs of athletic shoes to local students.

Steps 4 Success is dedicated to providing school-aged children and their siblings with properly fitted athletic shoes and when they can, a new pair of socks. Students also get to select a book from a wide variety of options. There is also a goodie bag stuffed with great items.


The Steps 4 Success program was started by Rotarian Vera Miller over 20 years ago and the goal has remained the same since inception – to serve the needs of the community.


Throughout the year, the Rotary Club of Santa Clara runs multiple fundraisers to raise money for the event, the largest of which is the Silicon Valley Barbecue Championships.

Also we need to mention some of the great event sponsors who help make this event a reality: All Reasons Moving, Mission City Community Fund Library Foundation, Sports Basement, Montessori School of Silicon Valley, the San Francisco 49ers, New Balance, Lexus of Stevens Creek, and Kona Ice.
