5K Run & 1 Mile Walk 
First Annual One Small Step  
5K Run/1 Mile Walk 
Saturday, October 27 at 8am 
East Fallowfield Twp. Park
Coatesville, PA
Hosted by Doe Run Presbyterian Church 
'One Small Step' is a song and more importantly a concept, adopted by a group of local churches which aims at bringing the community together, honoring differences, and creating a friendlier place for all walks of life. It's easy to get wrapped up in the turmoil and negativity of a changing world, and we believe if everyone were to take 'one small step' it would make a big difference.  
The First annual One Small Step 5K Run/1 Mile Walk will help to grow this concept within our local community and energize people along the way. The involvement of dedicated, caring people who are seeking change within our churches, schools, and other organizations will be catalysts for the making of a better world.
