I like to run and love fair trade, and find great joy in being the change I wish to see in the world. I became passionate about fair trade just about the same time I began running (about 9 years ago). I have done a lot of reflecting over the past few months and have realized that I would not have gotten as far with my passion for fair trade without running and vice versa.

I am running in the JavaJog on April 25th to support better lives for coffee women in the Congo. On a daily basis, these women suffer tremendous hardships just to get by. Coffee is their lifeline and extra resources can ease their hardship and offer some hope for the future.

Support me in my goal to raise $500 that will go to support community improvement projects to benefit these women in North Kivu.
The funds from last year's JavaJog were invested 50% in training programs and equipment for the women to improve their business skills, the other 50% was given to local health groups that help women recover from violence.
