Take The Magic Step Foundation™
“Never Give Up”
Our mission is to improve the lives of underprivileged children and adults who lack education or face poor health or life-threatening illnesses. In addition to providing financial resources to advance research and provide direct aid, we will work with volunteers and partner organizations to provide those in need with hope, encouragement, and inspiration.
“Everyone can make a difference. Even a smile can lift the spirit of a sick child.”
–Uta Pippig, Co-founder
The Take The Magic Step Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was inaugurated in 2008 to help people in need receive education and achieve both better health and a greater sense of wellbeing through its direct efforts and support of local, national, and international organizations that either provide outreach programs or engage in medical research.
Its founders, Uta Pippig and Michael Reger, also formerly served as members of the Advisory Board at the MIT AgeLab. Their ongoing interest in medical science and community outreach is apparent in some of the organizations with whom they have worked and plan to continue supporting, such as the SOS Outreach Programs, the Hoyt Foundation, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House, the ‘Kinderhilfe’ in Uta’s hometown in Germany, the ‘PeopleWeaver’ organization in Uganda, the KIMbia Education Project in Kenya, the Pan-Mass Challenge, the Cleveland Clinic, and the Lehigh University.
In the years 2008 to 2013, the Take The Magic Step Foundation hopes to increase public awareness of children and adults in need through personal appearances and further support by its founders, and online delivery of basic health and fitness education through this Website.
“All of us here at the Take The Magic Step Foundation feel privileged to have
access to education, good healthcare, and enough food. To know that this is not the case for
everyone is what drives us to do what we can to offer hope, inspiration, and opportunities.”
