Story

Celia and I are ultra runners, mothers, and we are going to take on the Appalachian Trail in sections of 85-300+ miles over the next 18 months to complete the 2,193 mile journey. We begin year #2 starting 1,349 miles in! We hope this adventure will inspire and bring hope to others.

   Segment 14: July 16-31 miles 1733-2193.1

More than 767 million people live on less than $2 a day. What most of them lack in money, they make up for in resilience and resourcefulness. They may feel discouraged and limited, but somehow they still manage to make do with what they have. 
“Micro-enterprise” means small business and it’s a powerful model for empowering people living in extreme poverty. Shoes are a resource that individuals who live in extremely poor countries can use to start a small business. Your shoe donations mean a constant supply of quality product..
This ensures these fledgling businesses can be sustained long-term. Small business owners earn sufficient income to purchase necessities like food, shelter and education for their families.
