I’m proud to announce that I have found a charity partner for Project Gump! I will be teaming up with Sara and Ryan Hall’s Steps Foundation. Steps is a new charity, just founded in 2009, but it has already done a tremendous amount of work. Their goal is to utilize the connectedness of the running community to help people rise out of poverty. At this point, I have decided to set a goal of $10,000 for Project Gump, which Sara tells me will be enough to build a well in Mozambique where there is limited access to clean water. You can read more about Steps here: http://thestepsfoundation.org. I’m very excited to begin working with this foundation and start raising money for them! You can begin donating towards my goal here: http://www.crowdrise.com/projectgump.
Thanks and stay tuned here for more updates and follow me on Twitter at @ProjectGump!
