I ran my first half marathon last year to prove to myself that I could do whatever I set my mind to. This year, I want to keep running but with a slightly different purpose. I've always believed that anyone can change the world by helping others in their own little way, and this is my little way. This year, I’ll be running the Blackmores Marathon and raising money for Australia for UNHCR to support the amazing work they do to help refugees build a better future. One of the appeals the UNHCR supports is extremely close to my heart, as they provide protection and assistance for children fleeing extreme violence, exploitation and recruitment by gangs in Central America - including my home country, El Salvador. Please help me help them - every dollar raised will make a big difference in the life of these children and families. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
