As many of you know I have always had a passion and love for Africa. In 2006 I decided to just take the leap and fly to Africa. I flew myself to Tanzania to volunteer in an orphanage. While I was there I met Meghann Gunderman, who was starting The Foundation For Tomorrow (TFFT), from the moment I met her I knew she was amazing and was going to do wonderful things, which she has with the help of the wonderful people involved with TFFT. I always knew I wanted to be involved and make Tanzania a part of my life. Over the last 5 years life has gotten a bit in the way with work and school. But I have come to a point that if it is something I’m passionate about then I need to just go for it!
So when the opportunity came to run a half marathon in Tanzania to raise money for The Foundation For Tomorrow I knew it was something I needed to get involved with.
When I was in Tanzania I met a group of young children that changed my life forever. These children are now benefiting from TFFT with all the work they do. This is a chance for me to give something to these kids who have done so much for me.
Now here comes the hard part! I’m not a runner at all. I have been an athlete my whole life but a swimmer never a runner, but I’m taking on the challenge and taking you with me.
Thank you all so much.
