EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

About Me:

 

This is my third marathon, but my first BOSTON.  I've dreamed of running the Boston Marathon for a long time.  Training for a marathon takes a lot of time and dedication.  Getting up at 5:00am for a run during the middle of winter is not easy.  However,  running for charity is something that will motivate me to get through some of these tough mornings.  I believe in the work that the Hall Steps Foundation is doing and that is why I want to run for them.  

Ryan and Sara Hall, both professional runners, created a foundation to fund small efforts in combating poverty on both an international and domestic level.  From funding the construction of a hospital in Keya's Rift Valley to funding a running and job training program for homeless people in the Boston area, they've accomplished a lot in the two years of their foundation's existence.  I hope you will join me in supporting them.  Thank you for your support.

 

About the Hall Steps Foundation:

 

The Hall STEPS Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded by professional runners Ryan and Sara Hall to engage the running community with social justice efforts. Towards this end, STEPS has two grant portfolios, one domestic and one international. Domestically, STEPS funds mentor and running programs for at risk populations across the country that aim to position athletic activity, goal-setting, training and camaraderie at the center of the national movement to improve U.S. health, wellness and economic recovery. Internationally, STEPS funds initiatives that tackle structural causes of poverty such as chronic lack of access to clean water, shelter, physical security and opportunity. To-date, this has included (1) constructing community wells in East Africa to secure water access; (2) funding an orphanage in Kenya to ensure access to shelter and basic education; and (3) sponsoring legal counsel for victims of human trafficking in Southeast Asia to enhance victims’ physical autonomy.
