My life changed forever after my first trip to Africa. By volunteer teaching at an elementary school in an underdeveloped village in South Africa, I was able to see education through a completely different lens. This perspective lit a fire in me. An uncontrollable one. Over the span of two years I've spent 62 days in Africa. When I compare the immensity of an impact that continent has had on my life to the minuscule amount of time I have spent there, I realize my footprint is not yet deep enough. If I can feel more alive in 62 days than I have felt in 21 years, there is more to be accomplished. There is more to give when I realize how much I have been given which is why there was no doubt, thought, or second-guessing my decision to fundraise and run. Adam Braun taught me to be proactive about becoming the person you want to be. I'm ready to run, I'm ready to fundraise, and I'm ready to contribute to the one thing that will change this world: EDUCATION. What a blessing and an honor to serve in this way.
