About Ryan Hall
A native of Big Bear Lake, Ryan began his Olympic journey at Snow Summit with weekly 1-mile timed runs up "The Wall" ski run, which the Big Bear High School cross-country team still utilizes as part of its summer training program, resulting in three state championships.
BBHS Cross Country will receive funds from Angel Bins
who will then process them for export to various countries in South America & Africa, where they create thousands of jobs for micro-entrepreneurs who resell them as a means of supporting their families. It’s an amazing way to help so many people become self-sufficient and get them out of the poverty trap and on to a brighter path. If you would like to donate shoes but cannot participate in the race, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make other arrangements.
