Hello everyone and thank you for taking time out of your day to visit my fundraiser. I promise you it will be well worth your time.
What I'm doing: I am a 4 year cross country runner and more importantly a passionate ambassador of the sport of running. Using the love of the sport bestowed upon me, I am running my next marathon, the 2013 Bayshore Marathon, on behalf of The Hall Steps Foundation in a humanitarian effort to go beyond myself and help as many people as I can.
The charity I am working to raise funds, The Hall Steps Foundation, benefits the IRIS Ministries and affects numerous African nations.
Many countries are without a clean water supply and are suffering and paying the ultimate price. A child dies every 15 seconds from lack of clean water! 1 in 5 have diseases that stem from a lack of clean water. Annually, poor water quanity and quality kills more people than war!
Absolutely 100 % of the proceeds raised through my marathon effort will be going to help better water quality and health clinics to treat disease in struggling nations.
What I ask of you: I want to ask my gracious donors for a mere 1 dollar per mile donation, meaning a total donation of 26 dollars for the 26 mile race (although any amount you are able to donate will be graciously accepted).
Thank you so much for your generousity. I promise to work my hardest towards this race so not a single penny is donated without my personal blood, sweat, and tears. Updates will be posted periodically.
