Despite the intense New England heat at the Boston Marathon, the Steps
team prevailed and in the process took great “steps” towards bettering
the health of those in need domestically and abroad. Through the
funds raised, Steps was able to give back to the area that has
provided Ryan and Steps runners with such an incredible race
experience year after year and write a grant to Boys and Girls Club of
South Boston for $5,000.00. The community served by the South Boston Club continues
to confront multiple challenges, including poverty, inadequate
education, unemployment, crime and high levels of substance abuse and
addiction. For the growing number of high-risk youth who live in the
area, the South Boston Club is a major resource.The Boston Team also helpedraise $33,000.00 to complete Steps’ hospital in the Rift Valley of Kenya!For more information, see Steps’ Kenyan Hospital.
Way to go runners!
