THE STORY:

As a native Alaskan, the ‘great outdoors’ has always been a significant part of my life. To this day, I am humbled by the vastness and the overwhelming beauty of the land surrounding our home. I am so grateful I grew up in that environment; not only has it made me more of an adventurer, but it has given me a deep respect for the delicate balance between humans and nature.

On August 31, 2014, I start a 7 day, 156 mile race in the backcountry of Madagascar along with 250 other people from 40 countries around the world – it will be the journey of a lifetime. Everything I need for those 7 days will be carried on my back for up to 10 hours a day. More information about the race can be found here: Madagascar Roving Race
 
While this is a race of endurance, it is more of a race of will. I am excited for this challenge and ask that you join me in this journey by supporting a great organization focused on preserving the world’s wild places. I’ve chosen to support Conservation International as they conduct phenomenal work around the globe to protect the world’s biodiversity, including a deforestation project in Madagascar (Deforestation Project).
 
I am hoping to raise $1560 - $10 for every mile of the race. You can also sign up for updates on the race here. And I’ll be sure to send out a full update after the race.  
 
Thank you in advance for your support!

Lisa
 
This race is dedicated to the memory of my sister, Lyndsay Thomas, and my friend, Erin Deans.
