Join Homes for the Brave for our signature fundraising event of the year! Step Up for the Brave is a unique, vertical challenge where participants are encouraged to conquer a target number of stairs in honor of our brave service men and women! One time around the course is a combination of 1,000 steps and stairs. Participants will have at 90 minutes to complete their individual goals.

Bring friends and family to cheer you on. Fun is front and center at Webster Bank Arena for all to enjoy. Anyone 8 years and older is eligible to participate in the challenge.

It costs $35 to register per person. Registration fee includes an event shirt, light breakfast, and medal. Proceeds from this event will support Homes for the Brave's mission to help homeless individuals, most of whom are Veterans, return to productive and meaningful lives.

Prizes will be awarded to the top climbers. New this year! For every $100 raised, an individual will receive one entry to win a grand prize. The more money raised, the greater the chance to win!
