On Saturday, February 21, a blessing from Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the beautiful peeling bells of the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, and a release of ECO Doves (environmentally friendly dove-shaped balloons) will send off more than 10,000 runners of all ages as they take part in the 10th Annual Steps-for-Students 5K Run/Walk and the David K. Guite Memorial 1K Family Fun Run.

Benefitting the network of 61 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, the Run/Walk starts at 8 a.m. at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, 1111 St. Joseph Parkway, Houston. The event is sponsored by Yellow Cab and Taxis Fiesta.

School communities, parishioners, community partners and runners from across the Archdiocese will participate in Steps for Students.
