My Story

Hey there! Welcome to my page. I’m a math nerd by day, big dreamer by night and a relentless human soul by every waking second.


I thrive for knowledge, kindnesses and the indomitable human spirit. It is my most precious privilege to have this life and so I try my hardest to make its torch burn as brightly as possible and impact my human family for generations to come.

One of my most daring dreams is to build schools around the world. Education has opened unimaginable doors of opportunities for me. I want to pay it forward and create a path of more possibilities for other children too. Over the past 5 years, I have run more than 40 marathons, raised almost $300,000 and built 8 schools on 3 different continents. Running for schools has become a mighty purpose of my life. I have run on Antarctica, the Great Wall of China, and in the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. My future races will take me to Kilimanjaro, to Mount Everest and to the North Pole. I train really hard and push my body beyond measures but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Follow my journey and if you can, please support my dream. Every dollar counts and goes towards schools. 

 I believe helping others is one of the greatest byproduct of our human existence. I rejoice in altruism and practicing it has given me some of the biggest joys of my life. 

 

Grateful and Humble,

Sandra
