Team Half-Step has partnered with CrossFit AZO to host a CrossFit-style workout fundraiser. You DO NOT need to have previous CrossFit experience to participate, we have created this workout to fit ALL levels of fitness. All proceeds generated from this event will benefit underfunded middle and high school cross country and track programs in the Kalamazoo area. We want this to be a fun event that incorporates a great cause with physical fitness and light competition!

Galesburg-Augusta Track and Field + Cross Country


Exciting news, half-steppers! We have officially partnered with Galesburg-Augusta’s Track and Cross Country teams! After meeting with their head coach, Dave Hocker, we knew it would be a good fit. Dave is passionate about his coaching duties, working hard for his athletes and making sure each student has appropriate shoes and gear, even if that means spending out of his own pocket. Moving forward with this partnership, we would like to focus on a few things for these athletes; ensuring they have proper shoes, and helping to raise money for their cross country camp this summer.


As any cross country runner knows, attending summer camp is a highlight of the season and starts the year off with a team that has bonded together through the long runs and evening activities that the camp has to offer. It is a memory that is well worth the hard work. Coach Hocker would like as many athletes as possible to attend his camp this summer, though many can’t afford it. Team Half Step: Kalamazoo would like to assist with the fundraising for Galesburg-Augusta’s cross country camp so that every athlete has the opportunity to attend. Stay tuned for details on how you can help; we will be announcing a very exciting fundraiser soon!


Enjoy this beautiful running weather (finally)!
