About Steps for Sleep

Get ready for an exhilarating morning filled with music, movement, and community spirit, all while making a meaningful difference in the lives of children.

Our 4th annual family-friendly walk and wellness event celebrates the connection between physical activity and healthy sleep while building community around our work to provide 1800 kids with new beds and Dream Kits this year.

Steps for Sleep honors My Very Own Bed's vision: All children should have a bed so they can sleep well, dream, and find comfort in a place of their own. This event brings our community together – families who've received beds, volunteers, donors, health and wellness-related organizations, and anyone interested in learning more about how to improve their sleep, health, and well-being.

Join us for our in-person event at DeLaSalle High School on May 18! Can’t make it? You can still register and Walk Anywhere! You might even be inspired to host your own Walk Anywhere Community Event.

About My Very Own Bed

Businesses.pngSince our founding in 2014, My Very Own Bed has had one goal: to provide new beds and Dream Kits (bedding, books, and stuffed animals) to children moving into stable housing.

While working in social services, founder Michael Allen saw beds as a great need as he helped families move out of shelters and into homes. What struck him most was seeing children sleeping on the floor because a bed was out of reach for many families. With the incredible support of our community, we've provided more than 7,000 beds to kids throughout the Twin Cities and plan to reach 1800 kids in 2024. Learn more.
