In the Spring of 2019 I will be taking on a fastpack of the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal with the Himalayan Adventure Labs crew. It's a great opportunity to finally visit Nepal and push my limits by running/hiking 142+ miles and 37k+ minimum over 12 days on the trail.
My travel companions and I will experience the big city of Kathmadhu at the start and finish and the people and culture of the remote mountain villages. Along the way, we will sponsor a 5k/10k race for girls on one of our rest days.
Beyond that, I have a great opportunity to help local children through the programs run by Wide Open Vistas (WOV). WOV does this through tuition assistance, purchasing of texts and school uniforms, food subsidies and other programs. There is almost no overhead since WOV is run by volunteers so almost all of the money goes directly to the programs it sponsors.
My goal is to raise at least $2000 although I think, together, we can raise a lot more. I want you to know that am fully invested in this effort so I am kicking it off by putting in the first 10% and will chip in another $100 for every $1000 raised. Please help me make a real difference in the lives of Nepalese children!
