THE HALL STEPS FOUNDATION IN CHICAGO 2011:
“Fighting Poverty Through Better Health, from Chicago to Kenya”
The Hall Steps Foundation is delighted that our co-founder, Ryan Hall, will be running the 2011 Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 9th.
This year, in honor of Olympic Marathon Champion and former Chicago Marathon winner Sammy Wanjiru, our Chicago donations will go toward fighting poverty through health in Kenya. Ryan and Sara will be traveling to Kenya next year to train and explore opportunities for Steps to fight poverty throughout Africa.
Steps has already committed a grant to professional runner and Steps friend, Wesley Korir, to build a hospital in his home village in the Rift Valley of Kenya. Wesley will also be running in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon! Ryan and Wes are sending a message that world-class runners can compete on the roads, and join forces for a great cause after the race!
For runners who were already registered for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and are joining Hall Steps Team we are asking for $1,500 minimum fundraising commitment.
For runners who were not already registered for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and are using a Steps Foundation race registration, we are asking for $2,500 minimum fundraising commitment.
