Imagine if a single positive word could change a kid’s life.


Also, imagine this word inspiring that kid to become the amazing person s(he) is meant to be. Step Up for Words® is a community celebration that brings together kids and the adults and organizations that love and support them. Its goal is to increase the number of children empowered with their own
special word.



A kid’s special word is a positive word that defines who they are or who they aspire to be. During this family-friendly event, kids engage in a fun filled journey to discover and celebrate their special word. Kids leave the event with their own special word, full of pride towards their special word and with a commitment to live out their special word each day. Come join in the celebration as Hannah Park is transformed into a fun activity-filled one-mile celebratory route of free dance, music, singing and goodies.  Consider this a required family date to make kids in your life feel amazing!
