On May 24, 2015 I will be running the Mountains to Beach Half Marathon in Ventura, Ca. I have always thought of running races as only helping MYSELF, and doing it to make MYSELF stronger. When this fundraiser was brought to my attention, the motivation to do this race grew immensly, as I knew I would be doing it to support OTHERS. The Hall Steps Foundation to fight global poverty was founded by Ryan and Sara Hall. Two very inspirational people, which I had the pleasure of meeting a few years ago. They are helping to provide the oppurtunity to people in poverty to take their own STEPS towards a new future. Please join in me in this effort to help others create bright futures for themselves.
