Why am I doing this?

“The children that EON and Direct Reach Ethiopia work with have all the same aspirations as our children, but have challenges in their lives that these dedicated charities are helping to overcome – like access to good food and nutrition, availability of medical services.” 

“…its my hope that I can do something that raises awareness and raises funds that can help. I enjoy my fitness, I enjoy running, and this allows me to get out on the road, inspired to run for these great causes.”

– Richard Pearce
