THE STORY:

On June 4th 2016, my father, Stephen D. Baxter, unexpectedly passed away from a sudden illness at the age of 59. Since graduating from the Stockbridge School of Agriculture forty years ago, my dad pursued his vocation and joyfully shared his knowledge of agriculture with the community.

Whether serving as a director of his agricultural fraternity (ATG), speaking at local events, guiding a Green Thumb club, or volunteering his time to landscape parks/schools/museums; Stephen was always willing to lend a hand. He particularly loved growing and sharing the bounty he produced with the community. You could often catch him giving out tomato plants, herbs, advice both solicited/unsolicited, or participating in charity walks for the local community.

It is my hope to honor his legacy by running the Chicago Marathon to raise money for Project Bread, an organization that my father raised thousands of dollars for while participating in the Walk for Hunger.

"Since 1969, The Walk for Hunger has been a tradition in Massachusetts. Today, the Walk has become the country's oldest continual pledge walk and the largest one-day fundraiser focused on alleviating hunger…”
