As you know, I have set out on many running adventures over the last few years and when I have the chance to help a group in need by doing what I like to do best, I try and do my part. I have decided this year to help raise funds for The Halls Step Foundation while running the 116th Boston Marathon on April 16, 2012.
Deciding to work with the Halls on a cause close to their hearts was a step outside of my comfort zone. I am a firm believer that here in the good ole US of A, there are many that need our assistance first before we move on to the rest of the World.
…but have you ever googled or youtube’d Ryan and Sara Hall? Here is a quick glimpse at the people they are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGJc7lIi1CE
Besides being unbelievably talented runners, they are absolutely beautiful people. They are the most kind- hearted, gentle “famous” people I have ever met. They realize that they have a talent that has lead them to the life they are blessed to have and they want to share the beauty that life has to offer with other people that are less fortunate—both in the US and around the globe. Sara & Ryan are, simply put, trying to make our world a better place to live.
With the help of people like you willing to help support people like me, we can help the Halls and the Steps Foundation make a difference.
My goal for the year 2012 is to get 76 people to donate $26.20 and with this we will help raise 2012 dollars. It breaks down to 1 dollar for each mile I will run during the Boston Marathon in 2012.
What do you think? Can you help? Every bit makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.
