The Hall Steps Foundation aims to empower the running community to use the energy and resources that fuel runners’ athletic achievements for social justice efforts. The Steps Foundation funds initiatives that tackle structural causes of poverty such as chronic lack of access to basic entitlements including clean water, shelter and physical security. Specifically, Steps partners with leading international and local nonprofits in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia to fund projects that invest in sustainable methods of enhancing access to basic essentials.
To-date, this has included :
1) Clean Water, Agricultural Development, and Food security in East Africa
2) Building a Hospital in the Rift Valley of Kenya
3) Funding a program for Homeless individuals in the US that combines running with learning life skills
4) Sponsoring legal counsel for victims of human trafficking in Southeast Asia to enhance victims’ physical autonomy. In the U.S.
