Brittany's Run Across Haiti 2017

THE STORY:

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Sports have always made me come alive. The teamwork required to work toward something bigger than any individual simultaneously humbles you and forces you to believe anything is possible. After years of competitive soccer, I naturally gravitated to endurance running post-college and haven't looked back. For me, running symbolizes three main things: 1) Gaining a sense of place, 2) Retaining a grounded perspective, and 3) Building community. There's simply no better way to really see and start to understand a place and its people. Recently, I had the privilege of getting to know Ian, the founder of Team Tassy, and he told me about this run – an understatement at best. 230 miles over 7 days from the north to the south of Haiti. One of the hardest adventure runs in the world, they say. Over two mountain passes, through traffic and markets, and alongside fields of rice paddies. And then there's the heat. The point, though, is this: To show that Haiti is not a place to be feared or pitied, and to raise funds to support work to end poverty by providing training for good, dignified jobs. Hearing that something like the Run Across Haiti existed made me come alive in a big way, and I couldn't not participate. I'll be joining a relay team in February 2017. I humbly request that you join me on this crazy ride, and I promise to do what I can to document the journey as it happens – to show more about a place that too many people get wrong and to always pursue a deeper understanding of our collective humanity. 100% of the funds raised through these campaigns will go directly back into the Haitian economy or to the families that work closely with Team Tassy.
