Kayla Nichols 10K Hiking Fundraiser for A Step Ahead

by Kayla Nichols

Supporting: Step It Up for A Step Ahead Virtual 5K 10K for A Step Ahead Foundation Tri-Cities


Campaign has ended.


I'm committing to hike 10 kilometers on April 3rd to raise money for A Step Ahead Foundation, Northeast Tennessee. A Step Ahead provides free long-acting reversible contraception to anyone in the region who needs it. I believe in their mission because when women are in control of their lives - including when and if they get pregnant - women are empowered to reach their full potential and live their best lives. For me, having access to birth control has allowed me to focus on my career, live without constant worry, and work to better my financial situation. I'm lucky to have insurance that covers birth control, but not all women have that access. A Step Ahead bridges that gap and makes sure that EVERYONE has access to birth control - no matter their situation. 

Please join me in supporting this wonderful organization that does important work right here in Northeast Tennessee! My goal of $1000 can be reached if just 10 of my friends and family will pledge $100. If you pledge at least $100, I will go live on Facebook while I'm hiking to give you a shoutout! 10 kilometers x $100/each = $1000! Every dollar will help me reach my goal and will help provide free birth control to more women in Northeast Tennessee.

A Step Ahead Foundation Tri-Cities mission:

To remove barriers to long acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) and provide individuals a step ahead to maximize their potential in the Tri-Cities region of Northeast Tennessee.

A Step Ahead Foundation Tri-Cities offers free LARC (IUDs, hormonal implant Nexplanon, and the Depo Shot) to any resident or student in the eight counties of Northeast Tennessee. Additionally, we pay for all costs associated with receiving a LARC method, including the contraceptive consultation, testing required, transportation via Lyft or gas card, and removal. We also offer free comprehensive reproductive health education to anyone in our region.
