THE STORY:

What if you could help those in need just by putting one foot in front of the other?

Throughout October, athletes from all over the world will be putting on their running shoes for the Run Against Ebola campaign. The campaign will raise funds to help Doctors Without Borders in their fight against Ebola. Not a runner? We need you to sponsor our runners or donate to our cause. 

Ebola is one of the world’s deadliest diseases; we need your help to stop it.
