2015 is fast approaching and it's time to Step It Up for Stepstone Academy!

As the Corporate Giving Officer for Stepstone Academy, I am challenging myself to run 1,000 miles between January 1, 2015 and May 29, 2015 (last day of school for Stepstone Scholars).

Stepstone Academy is a 501(c)3 Charter School located in the Central Neighborhood of Cleveland, OH and currently serves 270 kindergarten through third grade Scholars.

Founded by Richard Frank, CEO of OhioGuidestone, Stepstone Academy opened doors in August 2012 with an innovative approach to education and high goals for achieving academic success.

In merely a few short years, Stepstone Academy has made a transformational impact on the Scholars, their families and the Greater Cleveland Community. Results don't lie: our Scholars began their Stepstone education in the bottom 10th percentile of students nationally. Today, they rank in the TOP 25th percentile nationally.

The Scholars have worked incredibly hard to overcome low projections for success and life-challenging hurdles and I am committed to stepping up to the plate to support their endeavors.

I'm passionate about Stepstone Academy, because I believe that it is the catalyst for changing the face of urban education.

I NEED YOU - 1,000 of you - to donate at least $50 for my committment to run for Stepstone Academy between January 1st and May 29th of 2015. Together, we can raise $50,000 for Stepstone Scholars and continue to make an unparalleled impact on the lives of children and families in their community.
