Brandy Hagel's Fundraiser:

Brandy's Run Across Haiti 2017

THE STORY:

I've been told that I'm crazy, but I prefer the word passionate. In February, 2017 I will be running 230 miles over the course of 8 days, with Team Tassy, from the northern tip of Haiti in Cap Haitian, to the southern tip, finishing in Jacmel. I've ran countless half marathons and completed 3 full marathons in my 26 years of life, just recently qualifying for the Boston Marathon, but nothing compares to this adventure that I am about to embark on. In 2010, a devastating earthquake killed hundreds of thousands of people and left over 1.5 million Haitian's homeless. Team Tassy is an organization in Haiti aimed to raise money towards rebuilding communities, providing access to education, health care, and job security. Team Tassy believes that every person has potential and we can begin to eliminate the barriers of success in order to help create sustainability and bring these families out of poverty, one community at a time. I was introduced to Team Tassy through Paige Marzinzik who just completed her run across Haiti in February. Since the day we met for coffee, discussing the possibility of me joining the team in 2017, I've been nothing less than inspired. Do you have something in your life that you cannot go a single day without thinking about? If the answer is yes, then you should definitely purse it. For me, it's Team Tassy. So, why run the absurd distance? Because running this far, from one end of a country to another, makes people notice. It fuels attention and it promotes awareness to show that Haiti is not a place to be feared, and it is not a place for you to feel sorry for. It is full of beauty and potential that we have to the power to reveal. It shows how one foot in front of the other signifies a movement, ultimately creating an impact and creating lasting change. Each dollar you donate goes directly to Team Tassy and the vision they have towards eliminating poverty for good. The more money raised, the faster we can get Haitian families into dignified jobs to create a better life for themselves and their people. Much love you guys.
