As an average person and an ultrarunner with two rare diseases, I felt I owned the corner market on running in the face of adversity. Then I was introduced to Free to Run, Inc., a not for profit organization that empowers women in conflict nations, such as Afghanistan and Iraq, to feel safe running and trying new sports. These girls and women are truly inspiring and I honestly feel that through FTR, these women will be changemakers in their countries.
Feminism knows no borders or boundaries. Please help me raise funds to empower these girls and women to be the change those countries need.
