Wanted to run this next race for more than just me. This organization's work in Africa has been great and wanted to help them out so if you have made it to this page already, thank you. If you are able, a $10 donation would help out this organization a lot, thanks again.
About The Foundation:
The Hall STEPS Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded by professional runners Ryan and Sara Hall to engage the running community with social justice efforts. Towards this end, STEPS has two grant portfolios, one domestic and one international. Domestically, STEPS funds mentor and running programs for at risk populations across the country that aim to position athletic activity, goal-setting, training and camaraderie at the center of the national movement to improve U.S. health, wellness and economic recovery. Internationally, STEPS funds initiatives that tackle structural causes of poverty such as chronic lack of access to clean water, shelter, physical security and opportunity. To-date, this has included (1) constructing community wells in East Africa to secure water access; (2) funding an orphanage in Kenya to ensure access to shelter and basic education; and (3) sponsoring legal counsel for victims of human trafficking in Southeast Asia to enhance victims’ physical autonomy.
