Marshall Cool via Crowdrise
November 12, 2012
Christmas is a time when we are blessed abundantly with gifts, family, and food. This year, for Marshall’s Christmas gift, I want to give him the gift of blessing others. Through Marshall’s passion for running, let’s partner with Hall STEPS Foundation, a nonprofit charity founded by Ryan and Sara Hall, to help combat poverty and improve the lives of some of the neediest people both domestically and abroad. You can read all about their great work at thestepsfoundation.org.
On Saturday, December 29, Marshall will be running a 10-mile trail run in Kentucky. This is not a race to push the limits of mileage, or to set a course record. It is a race to express the joys of running with family and friends. I, along with Marshall’s brother, Jake will also be running the race.
I would be honored if you would consider joining me in this effort to fight global poverty through better health. Donations to the STEPS Foundation are 100% tax deductible.
Marshall does not know anything about this. Please keep it a secret. On Christmas morning, I will put something together (please feel free to send a card if you would like) to show the donations given in his name, along with some STEPS Foundation running gear.
Thank you for believing in a Christmas about giving to those in need with the abundance we have been given. Thank you for supporting Marshall on this run of faith.
