Well, no international study travel this summer. Moving from Connecticut to the greater Washington, DC area was adventure enough! Still thinking about friends far and near, though, and have decided to participate in a different kind of challenge.
Last year, two of my teaching colleagues inspired me to try the Couch to 5K program. It’s an intimidating proposal for a klutzy, non-athlete like me, but nothing compared to the struggle of women in post-conflict areas rebuilding lives for themselves, their families, and their communities. This Columbus Day Weekend in New York, I’ve committed to the Run for Congo Women with the hope of raising funds in honor of these women. Can you help out?
