THE STORY:

THE HALL STEPS FOUNDATION

Chicago: An Ideal Place to Make History– Both on and off the Race Course

At the starting line in Chicago, we have the opportunity to join our Steps teammate, Ryan Hall. Ryan is one of the fastest American-born marathoners of all time and a participant in the Beijing Olympics. Ryan, along with his wife and fellow elite runner, Sara Hall, co-founded the Hall Steps Foundation. We join together with dual goals: to complete this 26.2 mile race to the best of our abilities and to raise funds and awareness for the urgent and essential work of this foundation. Ryan has one further goal in Chicago: to set the American marathon record and has committed to donating 100% of his prize money (a sum of up to $175,000) to the Steps Foundation. While this sum is impressive, it is not enough to fund each of the clean water initiatives in East Africa and youth mentoring programs across the country that Steps has made top priority.
The philosophy behind the Steps Foundation’s name is that each great achievement – be it a marathon race or marathon progress in reducing poverty– begins with small, individual steps which together add up to a greater sum than their parts. In this vein – our Steps team of 100+ hope to come together to raise $200,000 by the time the gun goes off on October 10, 2010. As my step toward this greater goal, I have committed to raising $1500 ($3000 together with Nick) for the Steps Foundation and its work in both the Chicago area and beyond.

Thanks for your help in supporting the Hall Steps Foundation!
