I signed up to run my first marathon back in January. It was something I've always wanted to do but wasn’t sure I would be able to. Throughout the training I've learned so much about myself, about grit, determination and perseverance. Running has impacted my life in a significant way. When I found the Hall STEPS Foundation, it presented an opportunity to let running impact those I otherwise couldn't. I believe so strongly in the generation of tomorrow, our future leaders, and not just the Canadian Youth but youth around the world. If you feel so inclined, join me in partnering with STEPS Foundation to provide education, nutrition, shelter, job training and mentoring for the street children of Ethiopia.
