John BAGGE PANTS is raising money for The Hall STEPS Foundation as his way to support the running community, spread the interest and love of running and help others that are in need of health care, healthy lifestyles and everlasting Faith in the Holy Spirit.
By making a donation on behalf of Bagge Pants, his cause and this foundation you are also contributing and supporting World Vision - a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families, and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
Today, our friends at World Vision are responding to dire needs in the Horn of Africa by supporting interventions involving food aid, health, nutrition, water and sanitation, and livelihood protection.
World Vision has a 5X multiplier on all charitable gifts toward this crisis in East Africa, which means that your contribution to his cause and the STEPS grant will be multiplied by five.
Dear Family, Friends & Visitors,
I have set a realistic fundraising goal of $299 to my cause for the 2013 year. Please donate as much or as little as you can on my behalf to this fundraiser and join a great number of like-minded and caring contributors like yourself who are making this extraordinary outreach happen.
All donations within this website directly benefits the Hall STEPS Foundation and encourages me to seek and run in charitable races as part of my RUN ANY RACE fundraiser.
