THE STORY:

My dream has been to run the New York City Marathon. I have an opportunity to run the New York City Marathon on November 3, 2013 if I raise $3000 for a charity. The charity I have chosen is The Hall STEPS Foundation. Below is a little information about this great charity!!

Elite runners Ryan and Sara Hall founded the Hall Steps Foundation to take small steps towards the marathon goal of ending poverty. It might seem like a big goal for small-ish runner-type people, but we think big. Very big. And we wouldn't have it any other way. Runner, walker, writer, thinker? Join us. It's a movement.

Still reading? Awesome, here's a little more.

The Hall Steps Foundation aims to empower the running community to use the energy and resources that fuel runners’ athletic achievements for social justice efforts. Currently in its first year of operation, the Steps Foundation funds initiatives that tackle structural causes of poverty such as chronic lack of access to basic entitlements including clean water, shelter and physical security. Specifically, Steps partners with leading international and local nonprofits in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia to fund projects that invest in sustainable methods of enhancing access to basic essentials. To-date, this has included 1) Clean Water, Agricultural Development, and Food security in East Africa
2) Building a Hospital in the Rift Valley of Kenya
3) Funding a program for Homeless individuals in the US that combines
running with learning life skills
4) Sponsoring legal counsel for victims of human trafficking in
Southeast Asia to enhance victims’ physical autonomy. In the U.S.
And then leave in the Running Mentoring part
 

The Hall STEPS Foundation is a great charity that is doing some amazings things with the donations they receive!!

I want to thank you for your support in helping me fulfill my dream of running one of the greatest marathons and helping support a great cause!

Thank you,

Steps is really looking forward to having a presence once again at one of the world's most prestigious races, the ING New York City Marathon! It is a race weekend that Sara and Ryan have participated in in some capacity every November since 2005, and "marathon weekend" in New York City is now one weekend they hope to never miss! The fall leaves are in full glow, the city is electric, and the race, of course, is unforgettable. 

Through the race, Steps will be raising funds for ongoing projects to bring better health to those in need.  For a list of current projects and past grants, go to http://thestepsfoundation.org/past-grant-recipients
