Michael Sutherland via Crowdrise
November 08, 2012
My name is MIchael Sutherland and I am a freshman at Penn State University studying Geography. For the last four years I have enjoyed running and what it has brought to my life but now I want to see how I can give back. In May of 2013 I will be running my first marathon in Pittsburgh and I want to go into the race knowing that I have helped to make a difference in the lives of others. The Steps foundation first drew my eye because of Ryan Hall who has been an inspiration to me through the way he puts his faith in christ as the first thing in his life above running and his work in kenya is reaching people at their most basic needs of clean water while also providing health centers for the people. In America we take clean water for granted but all around the world people die from contaminated water everyday because it is all they have. Through my process of fundraising my goal is to raise $600 dollars for the Steps Foundation by may of next year. Please help me to provide for those people who are less fortunate the daily necessities of life. Thank you for all of your help!
