Marathon man for a cause

Only months after running the Grandma’s Marathon in June, Central Lakes College student Steve Sabin is hitting the pavement again, this time pledging to run the Twin Cities Marathon for the Minnesota State College Student Association Leadership Program. “My hope and drive for this campaign is to further increase the awareness of the leadership scholarship and its benefits to provide opportunities for the future leaders of tomorrow,” Sabin said of his fundraising run. (He is pictured after finishing Grandma's Marathon.) After raising over $1,000 by running the Grandma’s Marathon, Steve has doubled his goal: to raise $2,000 by Twin Cities Marathon day, October 2. Sabin’s effort is two- fold: To promote healthy living and to support the scholarship program that inspires him. When asked what was his motivation behind choosing the MSCSA scholarship program he said, “This scholarship helps to pave the way for the students of today to become the future leaders of tomorrow. These are students who will become the future leaders, business owners and innovators.” Check donations may be sent to the MSCSA office: MSCSA- Steve Sabin Run, 505 Como Ave., St. Paul, MN. 55103
