Update, Oct. 16, 2022 / Step Up for Little Friends is now a completed memory of a cool, crisp and picturesque morning at St. James Farm in the DuPage Forest Preserve. For the second year in a row, the new location served to create awareness, fundraising and gratitude for many spirited families and dedicated volunteers along a short or long route in the sunshine. Watch for the Little Friends event to return at the same time in 2023.
