Read Mission Statement

"Be the change you want to see in the world."

This summer I am embarking on a challenge bigger than myself. DARE2MOVE is more than my solo call to action, it's my life purpose revealed to me...my passion...my mission....This June 1, I will be running my first transcontinental run from the coast of Florida to the southern coast of California hoping to raise funds sufficient to provide 1,500 people with clean water...My 24 year old gypsy heart dreams with no limitations, craves out of comfort zone challenges, suffers from chronic wonderlust, and longs for visions of conquered greatness. I have always been fascinated with the concept of watching people take hold of their ambitions and transform into what their dreams illistrate. I want to be a moving metaphor on this running journey to encourage people to lose sight of daily normalities, keep goals in perspective, to live free from their realities, to connect with their communities, constantly work on personal development and to HELP OTHERS...With every fiber of my being, I want nothing more from this life than to help others. It's my soulful passion and the cornerstone of much of my life's endevours. Being the passionate traveler/adventurer that I am, I have had the pleasure of experiencing many different cultures, all of which have greatly influenced and molded me into the person I've become and philanthropist at heart that I am......With all this said, I am asking you to please join my campaign and this beautiful charity. As I run from one large body of water to the next this summer, I will be thinking about the 1 billion without water and every time I twist open a water bottle I will try to grasp how that's a 1 in 8 percentage!....Let's impact our world for the better with clean water. I challenge you to donate the equivalence of your next birthday age! :)

Learn about the water crisis

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
