I see endurance sport as this beautiful tool to empower yourself, rise beyond what you ever dreamed to be possible!
Running is (obviously) something I love & I am aware of how prevcious my conditions are to be able to train in a safe environment for marathons and ultramarathons.
I want to dedicate this year to fundraise for the incredible NGO FreetoRun that helps to empower women and girls through endurance sport.
In November I will run the New York Marathon on their behalf!! I am sooo excited!
In May Arjan & myself will run the 55mile long (90km) Cateran55 Trail race in the Scottish Highlands together. We have been training since January & it's going to be such insane challenge & so beautiful.
Thank you in advance so much for your support and your donation.
Please find here a little bit more about the organisation:
EMPOWERMENT THROUGH SPORT
Free to Run is a 501(c)3 charity that uses adventure sports to develop female leaders in areas of conflict because they can and will be a force for positive change. But it's not just about sports. It's a chance to experience a full and free life.
With programs in Afghanistan and Iraq, Free to Run focuses specifically on supporting women and girls living in conflict areas. Why? We believe they are in greatest need and they hold the most potential for positive change.
Everyone deserves the chance to run, play and experience the outdoors. At Free to Run, we are working tirelessly to make that happen.
Please support our 2019 TCS New York City Marathon runners whose support will help Free to Run bring running, outdoor adventure, and leadership to amazing girls in our programs.
