In light of a rather challenging past year, Dave and I have decided to shift our perspective and celebrate the things we have in our lives and find fulfillment in giving back to those who have less.
In honor of this goal, we have decided to run the Denver 1/2 marathon with a team from Edge of Seven. Edge of Seven is a Denver-based nonprofit that creates awareness and volunteer support for projects by investing in education, health, and economic opportunity for girls throughout the developing world. Right now they are working with partnering organizations on infrastructure projects in five villages in rural Nepal.
Someday we hope to make the trip to Nepal to assist these projects with our own hands. Perhaps we will be lucky enough to make that happen sooner than we think.
