I am SOOOOO EXCITED you stopped by my fundraising page!!
As a physician and a runner, I'm passionate about being the best I can be through excercise and nutrition. My life has literally been transformed in the last few years by running. So many of us run because we love it, because it's entertaining and because it gets our lazy bums off the sofa to work off the chocolate we just ate. But what would happen if we gave just a bit of ourselves to run for a different reason?
Here in America we have so much, all that we need for success and a good life. Yet most of the world is without the basics of food, medicine and water. That's where WE can make a difference!
The Steps Foundation sponsors Iris Ministries, which is working to drill wells in Mozambique. My goal is to raise $6000 by the Kiawah Island Marathon on Dec 8, 2012. That's enough to drill a well that will reduce preventable diseases, invest in communities to stimulate farming and meet an urgent need in the poorest nation in Africa. That's enough to change countless lives.
Please skip the Starbucks and help me drill this well. You can track my weekly update of miles and dollars raised. Together let's do something selfless. Let's make a difference. Thanks for caring!
