All for a Good Cause
Donations throughout the two-hour event will go towards purchasing gifts for The One Step Closer Foundation Holiday Party (The 1SCF). The 1SCF hosts a holiday party for children admitted to hospitals during the month of December.
Last year, the One Step Closer Foundation purchased over three hundred gifts and gave them to all the children admitted to Texas Children’s Hospital and siblings ranging from 1-16 years old.
“It is a delight to watch these children light up as they enter the room and see the hundreds of gifts we bought for them,” said Jacob Zalewski, President and Founder of The One Step Closer Foundation. “Having gone through such a difficult and trying year in 2020, we are so grateful for any donation as every penny will be used to provide joy and happiness to these children during the holidays.”
Tana Karn, founder and CEO of RunGood, added: “We’ve worked with The One Step Closer Foundation for years now and each year they’ve steadily out done themselves for bettering the lives of children affected with Cerebral Palsy and other afflictions. Hospital stays are no fun, especially during the holidays. Looking forward to helping change that for many.”
