About Us

Who we are…

Steps4Stellar is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization established in 2011. Our goal is to raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer and to help families who are fighting cancer.

This organization was established in memory of Deborah Ellen (Wilson) Stellar. She was just 56 years old when she lost her courageous four year battle to ovarian cancer on March 11, 2010. As a longtime resident of Schnecksville PA, Debbie was very involved with her children and their athletic teams throughout their time at Northwestern Lehigh High school. She then became Founder and President of Lehigh University Cross Country Booster Club and the L.U. Track & Field Booster Club while her daughter, Dana Stellar Holmes, was a member of these teams. Throughout her wonderful life , no job was more important or rewarding to Debbie than that of being a “MOM”. Her daughter, Dana, is the founder and race director for Steps4Stellar. Her sons, TJ and Derek Stellar, along with her husband, Anthony Stellar, all play a huge role in this organization through volunteering.

In Memory of Debbie Stellar and all women who have lost their battle to this terrible disease, an educational scholarship has been established in Debbie’s name. This scholarship helps amazing student athletes who’s family suffers from cancer fulfill their dream of a college education. Over the years, we have been blessed with the ability to present several students with this scholarship.
