Step by Step Walkathon


The Cunningham Foundation is pleased to announce the Step by Step Walkathon, November 16-21. It is 8,325 miles from Denver, Colorado to Yetebon, Ethiopia.  The goal is to bridge that distance by raising funds to help support students in Yebeton with meals, school supplies and clothing.

There is magic in every mile - with the help of you, your friends and family, we can turn these steps into improving the lives of children in Yetebon, Ethiopia.

To kick off the week long event, Governor Bill Ritter has committed to walking the first mile of this epic undertaking. Governor Ritter will kick off this event by walking a mile on a treadmill at the State Capitol on Mon. Nov 16th 9:00-10:00am. When the Step by Step goal is reached, Governor Ritter will challenge the Governors of the other 49 states to join this amazing event!

Also, the Colorado chapter of DECA, a national organization for secondary students enrolled in Marketing Education, has already issued the challenge to over 7,000 of their members through the Quarters for Kids program!

You can join in the fun and help make a huge difference in the lives of those struggling with the basics of life in Yebeton too by securing pledges for every mile you walk, run, jog or move!

So get busy, challenge friends, schools, teachers, parents, and businesses - to participate in the rewarding joy of service, competitive spirit and become empowered to make a difference in the lives of others.
