Schoolhouse Steps is Nellie’s Schoolhouse’s pledge to walk 1000 miles and raise $18,000 in the process. This mission will increase autism awareness and funds for Nellie’s. Since April is Autism Awareness Month, it was a fitting time to begin the journey.
Until they wrap up their trek in October 2017, Tom Richards, Executive Director of Nellie’s Schoolhouse, and his golden retrievers Gus, Nellie, and Zeke, will be regularly walking in the area.
