In February 2017, I will be joining the crew of Team Tassy and 23 other runners to complete a 230mi ultramarathon across Haiti. Team Tassy works with Haitian families to create strong communities through the creation of dignified employment. The Run Across Haiti was created to show that Haiti is not a place to be feared or to be pitied while raising funds to support their work in Haiti. This year's goal is to collectively raise $200,000 which will be used to support dignified jobs for families in Haiti. Every step we take during this run we take collectively as a team. When we reach the end it's not just the finish line we cross physically but it's also this defining moment which will indelibly change our view of Haiti.
