Steve’s mission of giving back to the local community drives his involvement in philanthropy. He mentors entrepreneurs and at-risk youth, and feeds the homeless.
He started Adventure2Advance in 2009, creating social awareness, growth, and change by encouraging and inspiring people through participation in adventures.
To date, Adventure2Advance has led two major mountain climbing excursions, and raised funds for Take-a-Hike Foundation. In 2012, Steve and his expedition team summited Mount Everest, raising nearly $100,000 for at-risk youth.
Steve is also committed to making a difference internationally. In 2006 he led a project to develop a pipeline that brought clean water to 3,000 people in Lesotho, Africa.
