Donations made during the charity event will go to purchase presents for The One Step Closer Foundation's celebration party. In December, 1SCF will host a festive party for children admitted to hospitals.
It’s known that last year, The One Step Closer Foundation bought more than 300 presents and sent them to children who had been admitted to Texas Children's Hospital as well as siblings between the ages of 1 and 16.
Jacob Zalewski, President & CEO at One Step Closer Foundation, told reporters that it was nice to watch kids happy as they walked into the room and saw presents they had purchased for them. It was a difficult year, so they are grateful for any donation because every dollar will be used to bring the children happiness and joy during the winter holidays.
According to RunGood's President & CEO, Tana Karn, their company has been cooperating with The One Step Closer Foundation for many years, and each year they make efforts to improve the quality of life of children suffering from cerebral palsy and other diseases. Staying in a hospital is definitely not fun, especially during the holidays, so Tana hopes this help will make the children a bit happier.
