Liz is a global marathon runner who has run in various marathons in countries such as Afganistan, Beirut, Malaysia, the Ivory Coast, and more. She took to running as a way to grapple with her father’s passing. Soon after, she decided to combine her new love of running with her passion for travel and deep, deliberate exploration of other cultures.
In early 2019, Liz launched Run to Reach, an 18-month marathon fundraising campaign with the goal of running 30 marathons in 30 countries before turning 30 in June of 2020 – aiming to raise $100,000 to support local, women-empowerment organizations in each country visited. Instrumental to Liz’s mission is her desire to leave a positive social impact on the countries she visits, one equal to their impact on her.
With each step, she hopes to engage in the rich and diverse cultures of these extraordinary communities and highlight their natural beauty and inspiring initiatives. Whether it’s transforming education facilities in local towns and villages or providing women with the resources they need to become leaders in their communities, Liz hopes that Run to Reach will enforce change across the world.
Despite COVID-19, Liz shifted to virtual marathon runs to continue her cause. You can donate to Liz’s cause.
